Check Fails - Issue with Path?

I'm trying to do an assignment for a class I'm taking and it asks us to CHECK our package using devtools. When I do this, I get an error as below. I can't seem to work my way around it, it seems like it's related to a path in Windows but I don't know where it's getting the path name - I'm trying to force it to use a path name with no spaces or special characters like apostrophes but the thing keeps showing up and I can't figure out where the setting is coming from

I've tried adding --output=C:/path/path/ to the check options but that only makes it worse. Any assistance is appreciated.

==> devtools::check()

Exited with status 1.

Looks like the error occurs when the package is being installed. Does the setwd call occur somewhere in an R file in the package? perhaps outside of a function?
