I'm having trouble downloading tidyverse

I'm very new to R studio and I was following along with the R basics introduction course on edx and needed to install the tidyverse package.

At first the error message was telling me to download Rtools so I did, then I got this error message.

What can I do to download tidyverse properly?

Thank you so much for your help

I suspect you selected to install a package that needed compilation. You have two choices: If you are new to R I suggest you restart and answer "no" so R installs the current released version. If you want to "live on the edge", you need to install Rtools and make sure they are configured correctly. See: https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/
