R

I ran into an error after installing SQL Server 2017:

After installation completed, the DBA enabled SQL Server 2017 Machine Learning Services, but as soon as I tried to run a simple R script, it stalled for about 30 seconds and then I got an error:

Msg 39012, Level 16, State 1, Line 0

Error: could not find function “rxSqlUpdateLibPaths”
Execution halted
