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
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") library(tabulizer)
However, I could not make it work on RStudio (version 2022.02.1 Build 461).
I left my R Session for further reference:
