6.2 "#icon" - this should be the first line, the default is "C:\Program Files\R\R-2.11.0\bin\R.exe", you might need to change that depending on the path to your r.exe, don't forget to keep the trailing comma and 0. 
6.3 "rbin" - this should be the fifth line, the default is 'C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-2.11.0\\bin\\', again, you might need to change this depending on your version of R and where it is installed. You need to put double slashes in the path and don't frget the trailing slashes.
