The reason is that stepplr fails the checks under Windows, hence we do 
not provide a binary version. Please ask the package maintainer to fix 
the Windows issue.

Indeed, as Stephen Sefick pointed out already, if you want to risk using 
a package that does not pass the checks, you will need to compile it 

Best wishes,
