Hi Zach,

The build report for today is not helpful because GenVisR failed on all platforms due to a biomaRt failure. Because that failure is intermittent, I just tried to build the package again on tokay2 and there were no problems (vignette or otherwise).

Let's give this another day or two. If you see the Windows failure again early next week please prompt me again.

Hi All,

I've noticed GenVisR is failing to build the vignette on windows for bioc-devel. the error seems to be:

"Invalid Parameter - /figure-html"

This seems like it may be related to the use of BiocStyle given this post on stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48747959/biocstyle-vignettes-invalid-parameter-figure-html.

Has anyone encountered this before? I found a thread on here from 10/19/17 which seems related but appeared to be resolved and there are not massive package failures for yesterday so I'm a bit confused as to what the actual issue is. I suppose I could set the output to .pdf instead of .html and see if that helps.

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated
