R 3.5.3 having trouble spawning a new process on my Windows 10 machine

Sam Albers-2
Hi all,

I am noticing some strange behaviour so I am bringing to this list. In the
past when I have submitted bugs to bugzilla, I have come here first for
confirmation/advice. Hopefully this is appropriate.

Upgrading from R 3.5.2 to R 3.5.3 seems to have elicited some strange
behaviour on my Windows machine. R seems to have trouble spawning a new
process on my machine. You can noticing with all sort of packages, like
devtools, which try to spawn new R processes. Here is the replication of
the beahviour:



## On R 3.5.3
Open a command prompt:

H:\>R
'"C:\PROGRA~1\R\R-35~1.3/bin/x64/Rterm.exe"' is not recognized as an
internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

H:\>Rscript -e "sessionInfo()"
R version 3.5.3 (2019-03-11)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
Running under: Windows 10 x64 (build 17134)

Matrix products: default

locale:
[1] LC_COLLATE=English_Canada.1252  LC_CTYPE=English_Canada.1252
[3] LC_MONETARY=English_Canada.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C
[5] LC_TIME=English_Canada.1252

attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] compiler_3.5.3



## On 3.5.2
H:\>R

R version 3.5.2 (2018-12-20) -- "Eggshell Igloo"

R version 3.5.2 (2018-12-20)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
Running under: Windows 10 x64 (build 17134)

Matrix products: default

locale:
[1] LC_COLLATE=English_Canada.1252  LC_CTYPE=English_Canada.1252
[3] LC_MONETARY=English_Canada.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C
[5] LC_TIME=English_Canada.1252

attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] compiler_3.5.2



## Considerations
- I have manually removed both my .Renviron and .Rprofile files just to
ensure those weren't muddling up anything.
- I have my PATH set like this "C:\Program Files\R\R-3.5.3\bin"  for 3.5.3
and "C:\Program Files\R\R-3.5.2\bin" for 3.5.2
- R 3.5.3 works final if I just open the default console that ships with R.
But then anytime I try to launch a new process I get the above error.

A similar issue has been raised up before

https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2015-September/071714.html

Am I missing something obvious here? Many thanks in advance for taking a
look.

Regards,

Sam

Hi Sam,

Is your PATH set on your user environment variables or on the system?
Did you try to remove the entry for R-3.5.2 ?

I have tested with a standard install, and I can't reproduce your error. I
have the exact same path in my system PATH environment variable for 3.5.3,
and nothing for other versions.

Sorry I can't be of any more help.
Cheers
Joris

Hi Joris,

Thanks for trying.

> Is your PATH set on your user environment variables or on the system?

It is set as a system variable

> Did you try to remove the entry for R-3.5.2 ?
For each version iteration in the above example, I only had the path of the
version that I was working with. So yes.

Sam
