RStudio crash on open (downloaded with Anaconda)

#1

I downloaded RStudio last week via Anaconda along with r-essentials and it worked fine. I came back from vacation today and loaded up RStudio, and now it crashes on open and gives this window:

And no matter what I click it crashes immediately afterwards. Here is my log:

Someone else posted the exact same problem here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50385198/failed-to-start-rstudio-installed-in-anaconda


When i launch rstudio I get prompted for a download file? anaconda install
Rstudio asking to save something on startup, failing to launch
Why not r via conda?
R does not launch properly

On SO there's a reply from a low-reputation user suggesting the issue related to either the latest version of RStudio or Windows 10. They suggest reverting to an older version of Windows. Not sure you want to take that advice.

I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling RStudio (here's rstudio's download link). Any reason you prefer the Anaconda version over that from rstudio or github?

Agreed.

I ended up just uninstalling Anaconda's version and installing it straight from RStudio. Works fine now! Thank you for the feedback.
