R version 3.6.0 and Rtools

Hi, I recently changed my R version from 3.5.0 to 3.6.0. and when running- install.packages("Rtools"), I'm receiving the following error:

Warning in install.packages :
package ‘Rtools’ is not available (for R version 3.6.0)

Is there a way so that Rstudio 3.6.0 is compatible with Rtools?

Thanks,
Thijs

Rtools is not a package. It's a separate piece of software:

Hey, I ran into a similar issue and resolved by un-installing a previous version of Rtools and installing Rtools35.exe from here https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/.

Hope it helps.
