When trying to install a locally built binary package, install_url fails. It seems this problem is very similar to issue #1191. The command I executed is:


And fails with the following message:

Installing sor "C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-34~1.4/bin/x64/R" --no-site-file --no-environ --no-save --no-restore --quiet CMD  \
   INSTALL "C:/Users/smoodie/AppData/Local/Temp/RtmpW4pfHQ/devtoolse431616e96/sor"  \
   --library="C:/Users/smoodie/Documents/R/win-library/3.4" --install-tests

I'm using devtools 1.13.5, RStudio 1.1.423
and R 3.4.4 64bit. It also occurred with R 3.4.3

Output from R.version below:
