Problem with installing "papaja" package

Hello everybody,

I hope this will reach anyone because I'm out of options...
I want to install the papaja- package in RStudio but it's just not working no matter which way I'm trying. I'm not sure, if it's because of the Umlaut in my last name. I heared before that there are some problems with devtools and the german Umlaut.
I'm gonna copy the code I'm using and the Error which is following now.

The Code

# Install devtools package if necessary
if(!"devtools" %in% rownames(installed.packages())) install.packages("devtools")

# Install the stable development verions from GitHub

The Error

> devtools::install_github("crsh/papaja")

I'm so thankful for help, really.

Thank you in advance!
Have a nice evening,

Try installing to C:/Program Files/R/R-3.5/library instead

.libPaths("C:/Program Files/R/R-3.5/library")

Also make sure that you are running rstudio as administrator
