[help ?] Default Shiny app not rendering after fresh install :-(

Hi,

After a fresh install of rStudio an running the default (tutorial) application of shiny shown here :
https://shiny.rstudio.com/tutorial/written-tutorial/lesson1/

It is not rendering as the example... No loayout, no CSSn and no interactivity... :frowning:

Surely missing something (library / package) but I can't figure out what is missing... This is the output of the console...

> install.packages("shiny")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/Stéphane/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/3.6/shiny_1.3.2.zip'
Content type 'application/zip' length 4694584 bytes (4.5 MB)
downloaded 4.5 MB

package ‘shiny’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded binary packages are in
	C:\Users\Stéphane\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmpk3JPk5\downloaded_packages
> library(shiny)
> runExample("01_hello")

Listening on http://127.0.0.1:7507

Thank you for helping !

Type sessionInfo() in the console, or any of the derivatives, and paste it here.

THe issue came from my username with an accent. Creating another Windows user without any accent solved this issue … 2 days of bad toughts about shiny :frowning:
