Installing cmdstan - Rtools/4.6.3/bin does not exist

Good day,

I am trying to install cmdstan 2.23.0 on windows10 using Rtools. I am following the installation instructions in appendix B.3. of the cmdstan-guide. I have downloaded
the latest frozen version of Rtools - version 35.

The instructions require path “C:/Rtools/gcc-4.6.3/bin” to be added to the PATH environment. However, Rtools does not contain a folder called “gcc-4.6.3/bin”. Rtools does contain “C:\Rtools\mingw_64\share\gcc-4.9.3\python\libstdcxx\v6”. Do I need to include this pathway instead?

  • Operating System:
    Windows 10

  • CmdStan Version:

  • Compiler/Toolkit:

Thanks in advance
