The answer to your question depends a bit how you are making use of RDCOM: 
the R interface is via rproxy.dll, and that recognizes R_HOME.  This is 
also mentioned in the installation instructions for the server.  So I 
would expect setting R_HOME in the appropriate environment to allow you to 
choose which R to use: it used to work some years ago.
