Help in installing swirl packages

I am new using R and I am not being able to install swirl packages.

Each time that I run it, it appears the same missage and I don't know how to solve it.

It appears a message that says that the permission to install it is denied.

Do you know what I shoudl do?


Error in install.packages : cannot open file 'C:/Users/mirei/OneDrive/Documents/R/win-library/4.1/file1dc03f6e38ac/vctrs/help/figures/cast.png': Permission denied

R has problems with cloud synced folders (OneDrive in your case), I recommend you to set your package library in a non synced folder.

You can change the default library folder by setting your R_LIBS_SITE environmental variable in a .Reviron or .Rprofile file. For example:

# In a .Renviron file you can set it by adding a line like this one with the desired location 
R_LIBS_SITE="C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-4.1.2\\library"
