RStudio fatal error when loading tabulizer

I recently updated R to version 4.2.0 on my Windows 10 PC. When I try to load the package tabulizer, RStudio crashes and the bomb icon with the correspondent "R encountered a fatal error appears". I reinstalled rJava, tabulizer and tabulizerjar following the GitHub Repo. This is, using the following command line:

remotes::install_github(c("ropensci/tabulizerjars", "ropensci/tabulizer"), INSTALL_opts = "--no-multiarch")

In addition, I set manually the JAVA_HOME from my environment variables and used the command Sys.setenv(JAVA_HOME = "C:/Program Files/Java/jdk-18.0.1"). As you may notice, I used the last JDK version available here.

This strategy worked on VSCode and in R-Terminal if I used the following:

Sys.setenv(JAVA_HOME = "C:/Program Files/Java/jdk-18.0.1")

However, I could not make it work on RStudio (version 2022.02.1 Build 461).

I left my R Session for further reference:

I'm having the same exact issue. I can run it in native R, but RStudio bombs every time.

Just an FYI, I went back to the previous version of R (Index of /bin/windows/base/old/4.1.2)) and then the RStudio IDE didn't crash with tabulizer.
