RStudio will not start up.

Error Information:

Description of issue - When I try to run RStudios the icon appears in my taskbar however when i click the icon nothing happens. When I hover over the icon it shows a blank white box. RStudio is running however as it shows that it is using memory and cpu in task manager.

Attempted steps taken to fix - I have uninstalled Rstudio and redownloaded, uninstalled R and redownloaded. I have unistalled both R and RStudio at the same time and at different times. I have followed the steps from but nothing seems to work there.

What has worked for me is going back to RStudio 1.0.153, however this is not the most up to date version of RStudios so it will work for me in the short-term but it would be prefferable if I could get the most recent RStudios to work.

  • RStudio Edition: Desktop
  • RStudio Version: Latest RStudio (1.2.1335)
  • OS Version: Windows 10 64-Bit
