But wait. If my issue was pointing to the wrong directory, I don't get
why :session vs. not would make a difference?

This is the exact error I get:

'R' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

How does :session find R if it's not in Windows path and seems to
depend on explicitly being told where to look via org-babel-R-command?
