How to run WRS2 package on SPSS25?

I have a problem installing the "WRS2" package to my SPSS 25 version. I installed R.3.3.3 and also did the "hello - R" check and it worked. However, whenever I am trying to run the "install.packages("WRS2")" code - this is what I get:
(Sorry it is German :upside_down_face:)



Installiere Paket nach 'C:/ProgramData/IBM/SPSS/Statistics/25/extensions'
(da 'lib' nicht spezifiziert)
--- Bitte einen CRAN Spiegel für diese Sitzung auswählen ---

Es gibt eine Binärversion, jedoch ist der Quelltext neuer:

As I desperately need this package to run robust measurements, I am happy for any help and advice you can give me here :slight_smile:

Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,

Does SPSS only works with R 3.3.3? Current version is 3.5.3 and whenever there is a problem with package installation, often times it helps to update to the most current version.

Also, can you try installing this package directly in R? The error message you actually get is not shown, as far as I can tell.

Finally, do you have Rtools installed? Since you are on Windows and this package requires compilation, it will only work if you have Rtools on your machine. Keep in mind that Rtools is not an R package, but program on its own.
