Tidyverse installation issue


I've just installed R 4.0.2 and Rstudio 1.3.959, and i've installed tidyverse, but when i call it from Rstudio, i get the following error message:
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in inDL(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now), ...):

  • unable to load shared object 'C:/Users//Documents/R/R-4.0.0/library/Rcpp/libs/x64/Rcpp.dll':*
  • LoadLibrary failure: The specified procedure could not be found.*
    In addition: Warning message:
    package ‘tidyverse’ was built under R version 4.0.2

I've seen some posts about the system PATH, so here's mine:

Not sure what else to do at this point. Any help would be appreciated.



Did you try reinstalling Rcpp ?

Hey @travis1585!

I was having the exact same issue and I saw on another resource on Git that the issue could be with your version of R. I was running 4.0.0 and updated to 4.0.2 and the error no longer occurred. It seems that the issue may be resolved by "re-installing" R to the latest version.

Let me know if this fixes your issue or not!


Found this via google, and solved my problem! Thanks!

I also had this on 4.0.0 and it was gone when updated to 4.0.2.
Are you sure you're running 4.0.2? The Warning implies you're not. You may have installed it, but not using it. The best way to update R is with the {installr} package (make sure you run it in RGui.
