What happens if you use install.packages("rlang")? That shouldn’t be necessary, but the error message could narrow down the possibilities.

i get this strange msg

install.packages(“rlang”)
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/dimarcantonio/Documents/R/win-library/3.2’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Package which is only available in source form, and
may need compilation of C/C++/Fortran: ‘rlang’
These will not be installed

Ah, I get it now. You are using an older version of R that does not get updated package binaries for Windows. Ideally, you would update your R installation to the latest version (3.4.3). Otherwise, you will need to set up Rtools in order to install from source.
