I get a compilation error on a Windows machine with appveyor. Im no expert on windows so I cannot judge whet the problem ectually is in the ps package or in Rtools or Rcpp. But it come from R CMD INSTALL of the pxweb package and signals the 'ps' package. See the link below for the whole build process.

Also the problem started just without any changes in my code relevant to the problem, so I guess the problem is a dependency problem somehow.

The Appveyor output:

ERROR: compilation failed for package 'ps'

I guess this is temporary, and it happens because CRAN does not have binary package for the new version, so r-appveyor tries to compile it from source. You can just wait, or add this to your appveyor.yml:

environment:
  USE_RTOOLS: true

E.g. https://github.com/r-lib/rcmdcheck/blob/307133433f03a29236adf5f714e4736cb90f1fc3/appveyor.yml#L20
