Just a few days ago I started working with R and in Rstudio it gives me the following message:
WARNING: Rtools is required to build R packages but is not currently installed. Please download and install the appropriate version of Rtools before proceeding:

I saw that someone else had the same problem as me and managed to solve it but it is impossible for me to solve the problem.
I don't know which folder to look in to delete that particular file.
