I have tried to install aWhere API R Package as described in the we bpage - https://github.com/aWhereAPI/aWhere-R-Library. But, I am getting error, even when I am logging as administrator.
** testing if installed package can be loaded
*** arch - i386
Fatal error: cannot open file 'C:\Users\Surajit': Permission denied

*** arch - x64
Fatal error: cannot open file 'C:\Users\Surajit': Permission denied

ERROR: loading failed for 'i386', 'x64'
* removing 'D:/Program Files/R/R-3.4.4/library/aWhereAPI'
In R CMD INSTALL
Error: Command failed (1)

Hello Surajit, would you please provide the specific set of commands you are using to attempt to install the package. Are you attempting to use devtools::install_github or have you pulled the repo to your local machine and are attempting to install from there?

Also would you please confirm that from within R you are able to set your working directory to the folder 'C:\Users\Surajit'. With further information we can proceed; thank you
