>> Funnily, this problem disappears when I use RTools31.exe. And, I am not the only one facing this issue. A lot of people in my group (in which we all are learning R) are facing the same problem. I am really puzzled as to why RTools32.exe isn't compatible with R 3.1.2 !!

Yes, that was my fault - I hadn't updated devtool's list of Rtools

I've fixed it in the dev version which can be installed by following
the instructions at
 (I'd appreciate it if someone could try this out and let me know if
it doesn't work)
