I have difficulty to install the package of "rnaseqGene" to my R (3.5.2) in windows desktop. I used the following 4 different ways to install, however none of them is working and give me an error. Is there any comment or solution for this issue?



if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("rnaseqGene")

Why are you doing all these random things? You evidently know about BiocManager::install, which is the only way you should be installing any Bioconductor package.

Bioconductor version 3.8 (BiocManager 1.30.4), ?BiocManager::install for help

There is one source install in there, which doesn't have any C code, so I think it should install OK on any Windows box. Howeva, I could be wrong, and given that I have Rtools installed, that might be why it works for me and not for you. So you could try installing the Rtools if BiocManager::install doesn't work.

Also, you need in future to show the output from your attempts, as nobody can really help you if you just say 'I tried this thing and it did not work'. That is not a useful thing to tell anybody. Didn't work how? What happened? Did your computer explode?
