Problem updating to windows 8 1
UPDATE and solved (hopefully) Seems like the problem was triggered by the "fast boot" option in Windows 10 (and 8.1).There even is a Tech Net article describing something like it.If that also does not solve it, try to use a different network port on the file server (if possible).) directly. Maybe I did something wrong, but at this time I really don't care anymore, as long as it works.Microsoft will probably release a (new) hotfix soon anyway.I am using R 2.13.0 with windows 7, after giving my user full privileges to the R folder (as described here). However, when using update.packages(), to update existing packages, I keep getting the following error (for example, when updating the MASS package): package 'MASS' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked Warning: unable to move temporary installation 'C:\Program Files\R\R-2.13.0\library\file6cae3bcf\MASS' to 'C:\Program Files\R\R-2.13.0\library\MASS' You're on Windows.
Upon adding the R directory to the exception list (coupled with adding user permission and installing R on D:\R), and the problem went away.Sheldon's answer worked better than going to corporate IT.Just to update everyone, I (think that I) found out the source of the problem: [email protected] Well I thought I read about it somewhere, but can't find it anymore, meh.Funny thing is, while searching for the information I came about this thread which answers the exact same problem nearly the same way, even with the disclaimer and all.
