In need of some help. I was about to start on my first Shiny App since a few months ago and I am now getting a strange issue that I have never encountered before. When going to File -> New Project -> New Directory -> Shiny Web Application, supplying a Directory name and clicking create project I get an unable to open file error. After clicking OK on the error message window and then in the files pane clicking and opening app.R and clicking Run App, the command executed is shiny::runApp('') which returns an error Error in shinyAppDir(x) : No Shiny application exists at the path "". If I type just runApp() in the console then the demo application runs without issue. It seems that there is an issue when Rstudio is trying to reference the directory path. I checked the working directory and it is set to the newly created project.
I am running R version 3.5.2 and Rstudio version 1.2.1335 on Windows 10. I am pretty sure this is the first Shiny App I have tried creating since upgrading Rstudio from 1.1.463.
I tried searching on the topic but didnt come across anything. Any ideas on the issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
