I have been attempting to collect enough material together to create a wiki book of sorts for the Windows user that is likely new to C++ as well.  I would be pleased to receive progress notes/problems off-list as you venture here.

Rtools is pretty good, but there are things happening that are quite foreign to most "plug and play" Windows users.  The small bits of making sure you have assigned a correct PATH and, of course, assuring that R is installed in a directory without spaces are critical and will be overlooked by some no matter how you post it.  This stuff is much easier than getting a class of Wndows-oriented students going with a Linux installation.

There is a new wrinkle with the advent of 64-bit architectures when it comes to multi-arch package builds.  I think you would be best to stick to inline code development for just an introduction within a single semester sampler course of statistical programming.
