installling R-devel on Windows

Gabor Grothendieck
When I try to install r-devel on Windows all I get is this.  No other
files.  This also occurred yesterday as well.

 Directory of C:\Program Files\R\R-test

12/05/2020  08:56 AM    <DIR>          .
12/05/2020  08:56 AM    <DIR>          ..
12/05/2020  08:56 AM            11,503 unins000.dat
12/05/2020  08:56 AM         2,594,145 unins000.exe
               2 File(s)      2,605,648 bytes

It just tested it to be sure, but it works fine for me. Are you using
the official installer from
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rdevel.html ?

The default install path is not R-test C:\Program Files\R\R-devel.
Perhaps you have old files lingering from previous installations that
cause permission problems during the installation process?

I clicked on the download link at
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rdevel.html
and then opened the downloaded file which starts the installation process.
I specified a new directory that does not exist, R-test, to be sure that
it would not get confused with an old directory.

I repeated this using different directories and on different days.

I tried it from a user and an Admin account.

If I use the exact same procedure to install R-4.0.3patched it works.

I have successfully downloaded and installed R maybe hundreds
of times over the last 10 to 20 years and have never before
encountered this.

Re: installling R-devel on Windows

I tried it from another computer and it did work.  Is there some way
of installing R devel using the analog of the R --vanilla flag so that I can
do it in a reproducible manner. It seems to remember prior settings
and maybe that is a problem although one would not expect a setting
that could lead to what occurs.  I don't see anything documenting flags
on the Rtools40 page.

I meant on the R devel download page. (I was just installing Rtools40
on another computer.)
