Hello everyone. I would like to ask for your urgent help (as I am writing my dissertation) in order to solve a problem when trying to install some packages in R Studio…
For instance, readxl, bbmle and maxLik which are very important and essential for my code to be able to run, give this error:
library(readxl) > require(readxl) > install.packages("readxl") Error in install.packages : Updating loaded packages Restarting R session... > install.packages("readxl") Installing package into ‘C:/Users/claud_000/Documents/R/win-library/3.4’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified) trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/3.4/readxl_1.0.0.zip' Content type 'application/zip' length 1457757 bytes (1.4 MB) downloaded 1.4 MB Error in install.packages : cannot open file 'C:/Users/claud_000/Documents/R/win-library/3.4/file19473d6458f/readxl/extdata/clippy.xls': Permission denied
Even if I go directly to Tools-Install packages, it always says Permission denied. What is wrong here??
