I recently got a new Windows laptop and have been moving all my old code over and getting everything setup. I was using R and RStudio for several days with no issues. But then I needed to install the development version of ggrepel from GitHub, which required me to install devtools and RTools.
RStudio hung up while installing devtools and ever since I have been having issues. I have uninstalled/re-installed both R and RStudio (and RTools for that matter) multiple times. I have deleted appdata\RStudio and appdata\RStudio-Desktop and no change in behavior. When I try to start RStudio I get a white window and the title bar quickly changes to "Not Responding".
If I hold down CTRL when starting RStudio and change the rendering engine to "software" then the program will start. It let me install devtools, however when I run
I get an error
Error:package 'digest' does not have a namespace
What can I do to get back to a functional installation of RStudio?
