R will not open properly after Windows Update #2802
Describe the problem in detail
Opening Rstudio leads to a blank R program window and a "Download File" window, which tries to save a blank file on your computer. The file has nothing on it. I have reinstalled RStudio and I have tried past versions as well. Nothing seems to work. Windows update is [Windows 10, version 1803].
If you do save a file or if you cancel - the entire program closes. Rinse and repeat.
I appreciate any feedback
EDIT - Current fixes for this include: Downloading Rstudio from this link ( https://dailies.rstudio.com/ ) and switching from 64-bit to 32-bit (mixed results),
Does upgrading help? We're now on RStudio 1.1.453.
We think this might be an issue introduced with Windows 1803, and that we have a fix in the daily builds of RStudio. Would any of you who are still experiencing this issue be willing to try a daily build to see if it fixes the problem for you?
@jmcphers The daily build that you linked worked for me. It's separate from using anaconda, but it still holds my temp files from the other Rstudio I have so I don't mind. @Andreas-Born switching to 32-bit doesn't work for me, still in limbo currently but I guess I'm fine for now.
Thanks everyone for your help!

I tried installing 1.2.909 and have a blank black screen when Rstudio startsup.
Help - Help Diagnostics - Write Diagnostics Report contains the error
17 Aug 2018 15:23:51 [rdesktop] ERROR system error 3 (The system cannot find the path specified) [path=C:/etc/RStudio_1.2.909/bin/resources/stylesheets/rstudio-windows-light.qss]; OCCURRED AT: auto __cdecl rstudio::core::FilePath::open_r::<lambda_d4246793555dd4e209de8cc0cf7ef3ce>::operator ()(void) const c:\jenkins\workspace\ide\windows\src\cpp\core\filepath.cpp:1072; LOGGED FROM: void __cdecl rstudio::desktop::applyDesktopTheme(class QWidget *,bool) c:\jenkins\workspace\ide\windows\src\cpp\desktop\desktoputils.cpp:145
Now C:/etc/RStudio_1.2.909/bin/resources/stylesheets/rstudio-windows-light.qss exists,
I tried replacing the contents of rstudio-windows-light.qss (which is empty to pickup the default)
I also tried some of the suggestions above
Other suggestions welcome.
@ttmmghmm This is a separate issue. The problem being discussed in this ticket is specific to RStudio 1.1 with Anaconda. The problem you've run into appears to be with the daily 1.2 builds that are currently in development. Could you open a new ticket, including your system details (such as version of Windows and R), so that we can review it? Thanks!
