Not working in Windows (indefinitely hangs)? #98
I've been looking forward to the CRAN release, and I've so far used it only on a unix server, but when I tried running things in Windows, it does not work and it indefinitely hangs.
It is as simple as
and it would just sit there running indefinitely. When I am installing I do get the following message:
I've tested it on two separate machines (Rstudio 1.1.456 and 1.2.1335 each, also tested with R Gui), updated R from 3.5.1 to 3.6, and tried the development version as well, to no avail. Not sure what is the issue. Were there any similar reports, or any solutions you may suggest?
Oh you also mention testing with R Gui. I have never encountered this and it does work fine on other Windows machines, including the CRAN windows machines and my personal one.
Can you provide any more relevant details about the machines you are testing on? What version of windows and what type of hard drive are they using?
My machine is Windows 10 and here is the session info:
I tried turning off the refresh automatically---didn't work. It's not an Rstudio problem, because mine is 1.2+ and it happens on a command-line R as well.
Sorry for this issue, the root issue was a deadlock in the multi-threaded progress bar that only manifested on Windows.
It was not caught because I primarily develop on macOS (it doesn't occur there) and the package tests don't use the progress bar.
My apologies, I will release a new version to CRAN soon with this fix.
