Answer

Hi, 
Please, I am installing a package in R but I keep receiving a pop-up that reads; would you like to use a personal library instead? I click on yes but after a while, it returns that the directory set is not writable therefore, i unable to install package.
Is there any way to solve this challenge? Thank you and hope to hear from you soon. 
 
Best regards, 
Adwoa.

Hi Adwoa, 
You could try opening R studio with administrative rights. Before you start R Studio, ‘right click’ on the icon and select ‘Run As Administrator’.
Alternatively, you could select ‘no’ if you’re prompted to use a personal library.
But do share, if there is still a problem.
 
All the best, 
Eli

Hi Eli, I have tried the suggested steps but the problem still persist and I am unable to install the package.

I suggest you take a look at the suggestions here and try them out, as they are discussing the same issue: https://github.com/RevolutionAnalytics/RRO/issues/144
