instead. You need to setup PATH correctly in order to run it manually  
- please read the documentation it is explained there:

Windows doesn't have fork(), so you cannot have more than one session  
in one Rserve in Windows. Use of a unix computer as a server is highly  
recommended as that allows arbitrarily many connections in parallel  
with almost zero startup overhead. On Windows you can still spawn  
multiple Rserve instances in parallel, but make sure you're not trying  
to connect to the same instance twice.

Again - just read the documentation - all you need is correctly  
installed R and R.dll on your PATH.

PS: Please use stats-rosuda-devel mailing list for questions on  
Rserve, JGR, rJava etc.
