Could not execute function call. -> The file already exists

Hello all, please advise if possible.

I've been running TERR and data functions without a problem, then all of the sudden I'm getting this error and none of my functions are working anymore. I've tried uninstalling Spotfire, R, Rstudio, and any registry related to it before reinstalling but still getting the same results.

What could have caused this? 

Could not execute function call.
The file already exists.

What version of Spotfire are you using? Can you provide the text of the data function? Or at least the command where the data function fails?

Does it work in RStudio?

Are you executing TERR or Open Source R? Locally or on a server?

Hopefully this info will help track down the problem
