Probably related to my last question, I am having a problem setting my .libPaths correctly. In particular, I can't reset the .libPath to my personal package repository. The following shows the output from my RStudio console. In sum, I am unable to change .libPaths(). I get exactly the same sequence using the R 64-bit GUI or the R 32-bit GUI. Oddly, the wierd .libPath seems to point correctly to my private package repository when I load a Windows 10 compiled package. But it seems to confuse the system when I try to load a package from source.
I suppose that it is possible that something in the startup sequence "presets" the .libPath. I will look to see if that is the case if someone would list the files that I should look for. But in any case, I would have thought that setting .libPaths within the Console should work. In sum, something seems to have stuck the .libPaths.
Running up-to-date Windows 10, R 4.0.2, and RStudio 1.3.1056.
Thanks in advance for any help on this problem. Larry Hunsicker

Addendum: Scratch the above. I just rebooted the remote desktop and now the funny .libPaths has returned to normal.
