reset rstudio

I have just installed the latest versions of R (3.1.0) and Rstudio (v0.98.507) on a Windows 7 machine, 64 bit.

The R GUI works OK, but when I open the RStudio.exe only a blank window opens. I've tried re-installing R and RStudio.

Any suggestions?

By choosing the R version I wanted to use I was able to use Rstudio again.

To choose the R version you want to use with Rstudio do the following;

  1. Click the CTRL key (don't let go)
  2. Click on the Rstudio icon
  3. Choose the version you want in the pop-up window.

When running diagnostics, it hangs on line "Connected to R session  My OS is Win 7 Home ver 6.1.7601 When I open the Rstudio, I'm greeted with a blank screen with menus which appear to be working. However, I'm unable to open new script or go to global options or utilize other menu options. I've run a diagnostic report and provided the gist below.

Download the 64bit version and reinstall it. The same for Linux

Press down Ctrl key and then click on RStudio icon to launch. A dialog box asks you about the R version. Choose the one that actually exists (you might see an R version which does not exist; confusing RStudio)

RStudio is blank when opened, Click the CTRL key (don't let go) Click on the Rstudio icon. Choose the version you want in the pop-up window. The menu options are there and I can open the dropdown menus, but most don't seem to work (eg. can't open global options or preferences). I've deleted/reinstalled R and Rstudio several times, as well as trying older versions of R and the preview release of Rstudio.

For linux, this happens to me on cloud instances. A solution is forcing software rendering of RStudio.

sudo nano ~/.config/RStudio/desktop.ini

Blank screen when opening RStudio : Rlanguage, Blank screen when opening RStudio. Hello. Recently started learning about R and it's applications but whenever I start RStudio it just shows a blank screen. I renamed directory Users\Geoff\AppData\Local\Rstudio-Desktop to force a new version of directory to be created. Describe problem in detail. Following a crash of R while using RStudio I had to a hard reset, subsequently I find that when opening an RStudio project the script files used are not opened, although the workspace is loaded.

  • did you figure it out? I am in the same boat
  • this worked perfectly well for me. Thanks for the answer.
  • It works, I installed two different version of R, so I think Rstudio doesn't know which one to use.
