R Visual Rcpp package error

Hi, all

I was using several custom visuals using R using R 3.4.2 however after upgrading to latest R 3.5.1 I find both custom  R visuals and basic Object visuals using R start failing (even after upgrading packages to R 3.5.1 compatibility)

 

 

1st Error on R Visual

 

R Code

library(ggplot2)
t<-ggplot(dataset, aes(ID, Promedio)) + geom_point(aes(color=factor(Year))) + facet_wrap(~Year)
#Cambiando los colores
t + scale_color_manual(values=c("red","black","green"))

 

 

Error trace 1

 

Error Message: Error in R script .
Error: package or namespace load failed for 'ggplot2':
 package 'Rcpp' was installed by an R version with different internals; it needs to be reinstalled for use with this R version
Ejecución interrumpida

 

 

Most annoying part is that previous code works in RStudio!! I have Powerbi--Z Options-->R pointing to my R version 3.5.1

Same code in R Studio works OK, without errors

Re: R Visual Rcpp package error

I had yesterday the same problem. Only reinstalling (or even go back to older versions) did not help.

Only after I deleted the libraries in "<user>/documents/R" and in "<user>/library"  and reinstalled R and installed the packages I needed, the problem was solved.

 

I think mixed package versions in <user>/library did give the problem for me. I did not know that packages were also in that directory. Only uninstall R en delete "<user>/documents/R" was not enough.

The newest version of PowerBi and R (3.5.1) are now working for me.

Re: R Visual Rcpp package error

Hi @dpombal,

 

According to your error message, it normally appears when loading failed for some R packages.
In my opinion, I'd like to suggest you copy these package name and reinstall in R studio.(please confirm install success and update all packages to last version)

Re: R Visual Rcpp package error

I reinstall libraries and keeps on failing could anyone test this on new R 3.5.1 and check if Rcpp is compatible?

HI @dpombal,

 

Actually, you need to refer to error message to add libraries to R script until finish add all requests libraries and packs.(I fix one similar missing package issues by this method)

Re: R Visual Rcpp package error

HI @dpombal,

 

I mean you can install bold part package (display in error message) on r studio side to fix failed loading issue.(install until no similar error message appears)

Error: package or namespace load failed for 'xxxxxx':

 

In addition, custom visual failed means request packages failed to load(missing or not compatibility).

Re: R Visual Rcpp package error

Great Man, cvhaven!

 

A Very Big Human Gratitude for this hint to you!

 

I lost a full manday due to updating PowerBI Desktop yesterday. It then required me to update R from 3.5.0 to 3.5.1, then R packages, then to solve emerged issues with R charts, but still not being able to get my dashboard to work...

It came at the worst possible time without any possibility to roll back. I was absolutely desperate until I saw your post. Your solution worked.

 

As a result of this incident I believe PowerBI should change their Desktop update policy from replacing an earlier version to keeping both versions until the user is able to fully test it.  (i.e. implementing a TEST + PROD environment)

 

Final note: the same dashboard published in PowerBI Service was not affected at all. Does it imply that PowerBI Service still uses R 3.5.0, and therefore issues there are yet to be expected?
