Error loading library

I'm new to R switching from SAS and I'm getting frustrated because I can't seem to load the tidyverse library. I have installed the latest version of R and then RStudio and then Rtools40-x86_64.
Here is my code and error messages:

install.packages("tidyverse", type = "source")

The downloaded source packages are in

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in inDL(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now), ...):

I'm sure it is something simple but being new to R I just can't get passed this error. Can anyone please help.
Thanks in advance
