Crash Information:

RStudio won't open!

Some attempts I've taken to resolve this:

  • run RStudio as an administrator
  • run diagnostics using the Run application and inputting "C:\Program Files\RStudio\bin\Run Diagnostics.lnk". This only opened a command prompt with directory pointed at "C:\Program Files\RStudio", but no movement.
  • Changed the shortcut name from "Run Diagnostics" to "Run_Diagnostics" and attempted to run diagnostics using the Run application and inputting "C:\Program Files\RStudio\bin\Run_Diagnostics.lnk". Again, this only opened a command prompt with directory pointed at "C:\Program Files\RStudio", but no movement.
  • Made sure that R itself opens (it does).
  • I have a versions of R. Hitting ctrl while starting RStudio does nothing.
  • After renaming my local appdata folder (locating it using %localappdata%\RStudio-Desktop), I uninstalled RStudio using the windows uninstaller and reinstalled the application. Still, RStudio won't open.
  • rsession.exe exists!

Other details

  • I use a Windows 10 and have recently updated it.
  • I don't have Kaspersky anti-viral. I use windows defender for security
  • There are many "AppCrash" reports (.WER) in C:\Windows.old\Users[myusername]\Recent\AppCrash_rstudio.exe

Would you be willing to share one of your AppCrash reports?


#3

Sure, its pretty large text file. Is there anything in particular that I can copy and paste here?


#4

Can you upload and share the whole document (e.g. with some third party cloud storage service, e.g. Dropbox or similar)?
