It just tested it to be sure, but it works fine for me. Are you using
the official installer from
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rdevel.html ?

The default install path is not R-test C:\Program Files\R\R-devel.
Perhaps you have old files lingering from previous installations that
cause permission problems during the installation process?
