When I try to install Rtools in the usual way into C:\Rtools on a new
desktop it stalls near the beginning of the "Extracting files..." step.
The Task Manager Status for the Setup app shows "Not responding" and it takes
a long time to complete the installation, in spite of the fact that
this is a fast machine
(Intel i7) with 16 GB if RAM.
There were no such stalls when R itself was installed.
