I have a student in my class running a Windows 11 laptop with the latest versions of RStudio and R installed and working as expected.
Whenever we install git (Using either gitbash or chocolatey, the two options for Windows users described in happygitwithr.com) and relaunch RStudio, RStudio only shows a blank white screen. If we uninstall git, the problem goes away.
The blank screen behavior is similar to other reported issues (e.g. Problem with RStudio showing white screen on startup - #5 by andresrcs), but in this case the user name has no spaces or non-ascii characters, the problem does not occur when git is not installed, and the rolling back to R 4.1.3 does not fix this problem.
Any ideas of how to debug?
