Yes, but you must have R installed. (Not just on your development
machine - machines that install your C++/Rcpp application will need to
have R installed.)

It appears RCOM is no longer open source software:

I would guess, as you are already comfortable with C++, that Rcpp will
be more to your taste. It is real C++, and real R... the downside being
you get the learning curve of both ;-)
