# Installing blogdown on Windows

When I initially installed blogdown I was not very successful, but in a new attempt it turned out there was a new version of blogdown and xfun. Now, with blogdown version 1.7 instead of 1.6 it seems to work well.

packageVersion("blogdown")

[1] ‘1.7’

packageVersion("xfun")

[1] ‘0.29’

R.version\$version.string

[1] “R version 4.1.2 (2021-11-01)”

paste0(Sys.info()[c("sysname","release", "version")], collapse=" ")

[1] “Windows 10 x64 build 19042”

Hint: use blogdown::build_site(local = FALSE) to build the site (default is local = TRUE).
