I recently started a project with version control in RStudio and when I created the project, I got the following error, "waitpid for git-remote-https failed: No child processes." I did some digging online and a solution seems to be to run it as an administrator, but when I did that it opened up a command prompt environment as opposed to allowing me to work directly from RStudio, so I wasn't sure how to proceed from there. I also installed the latest version of Git but that didn't fix it also. Can anyone help me figure out what to do?
Another question I have is since I couldn't do it the normal way, I used usethis::use_github to push my files to Github. Is there a way to specify to use_github to create a private repository as opposed to a public one? (I understand I can always set it to private on Github, but I'm just curious). Thanks!
