package ‘RQDA’ is not available for this version of R. Any idea, why the RQDA’ is not available for latest version of R

Sincerely appreciate if someone help in resolving the following error:

install.packages("RQDA",dependencies=c("Depends", "Imports"))
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/Dr BK Padhi/Documents/R/win-library/4.0’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘RQDA’ is not available for this version of R

A version of this package for your version of R might be available elsewhere,
see the ideas at

Follow installation instructions from here:

Thank you very much for your prompt response. Can we use RQDA through Rstudio.

Regards

Sorry but I don't understand what you mean, RStudio is an IDE for the R programming language so if you can install the R package, you can use it trought RStudio.

I am not able to install RQDA. It says the package is not available.

Thanks

It is not available on CRAN, to install it you have to follow the instructions on the package repository (the link I already gave you).

Thanks again. There was no instruction for windows/I am not able to follow it properly. Can you please help me in the installation process. It will be of great help. I can provide you my remote desktop.

Regards

Not tested on Windows but should work. Works for Ubuntu 20.10.

It is recommended to update all of them.
Which would you like to update?

1: All
2: CRAN packages only
3: None
4: RGtk2 (2.20.31 -> 2.20.36) [CRAN]

Enter one or more numbers, or an empty line to skip updates:library(RQDA)
Enter one or more numbers, or an empty line to skip updates:library(RQDA)

It provides links to a portable version, you just have to decompress the file on your package library.

Sorry but I don't do tech support, Do you realize this is not free customer service right?

Yes, the portable version is working fine.
Thank you

Type in 1, I think RCDA may need a couple of widgets

Good luck, it seems okay so far.

This seems to mean you are missing something at Windows level but I cannot help. I have not used Windows in many years.

Sincerely appreciate any help in the RGtk2.dll installation.

Thank you

What happened to "the portable version is working fine." ?

Yes. It is working fine. However, if we call the package through R-studio then it would be great.

Thank you
