This is a bit of a cross-post but I've encountered what appears to be a
parsing error with RTools on Windows in a couple of different contexts
on Widows when R is installed on a secondary drive to avoid using
precious space on my c:/ solid state drive.
This type of apparent parsing error has has occurred several times
previously when install source code from GitHub, and most recently when
installing Bioconductor code. It occurred that this list might have
input directed at RTools on Windows, if this is indeed my problem
Here's the full example of my most recent encounter posted to
In brief the parsing seems to break in the space in the path name:
The downloaded source packages are in
1: running command '"E:/Program Files/R/R-3.3.3/bin/x64/R" CMD INSTALL
-l "C:\Users\Rob Baer\R\win-library\3.3"
had status 1
2: In install.packages(update[instlib == l, "Package"], l, repos = repos, :
installation of package ‘GO.db’ had non-zero exit status
Is there something going on with my RTools installation I should
upgrade? My apologies if this is too off-topic for this list.
