Errors in Rtool installations

I am having a challenge. I wish to install Rtool package and I keep having this error message. Below is my line of codes:
\

* install.packages("Rtool")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/pedog/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘Rtool’ is not available (for R version 3.6.1)
> install.packages("Rtool")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/pedog/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘Rtool’ is not available (for R version 3.6.1)*


Please, can someone help? Thanks

Rtools is a separate piece of software and not an R package:
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/index.html

@martin.R Thank you for the prompt reply. I have checked the
< https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/index.html>
downloaded the Rtools35.exe file and ran the installation.
I tried installing a package and I got a warning message still that Rtool is not installed on my system.

So I tried installing Rtool using the install.package command on R, but still got the same error message as before.
Please, what can I do now?

Could you restart your R session (Ctrl+Shift+F10), try to install the package again (not Rtool since doesn't exist) and post the whole error message so we can take a look and see what the problem is?

ok I will do that just now.

@ andresrcs Thank you for your suggesstions. It does work perfectly now.

Many thanks o all who have assisted me through.:smile:
