I installed rstan from the “source”. I made sure rtools40 is up to date and created the .Renviron file in Documents. Made sure there is no .Rprofile file. But I am still getting an error when running the example model.

Need help getting started? Try the R Graphics Cookbook:
rstan (Version 2.21.2, GitRev: 2e1f913d3ca3)
For execution on a local, multicore CPU with excess RAM we recommend calling
options(mc.cores = parallel::detectCores()).
To avoid recompilation of unchanged Stan programs, we recommend calling
rstan_options(auto_write = TRUE)
Do not specify '-march=native' in 'LOCAL_CPPFLAGS' or a Makevars file

Sorry for the delay in getting to this one. Can you post the output from the following commands, I just need some information about your setup:

Can you try reinstalling rstan’s dependencies:


And then reinstalling rstan from source:

# Compile packages using all cores
Sys.setenv(MAKEFLAGS = paste0("-j",parallel::detectCores()))
