Could be you're just not logged in to Eikon. For me to be able to run R scripts I need to open Windows Eikon and only then run the R script. The message you posted is the message I get if I run the script without opening Eikon.

Hello,

Basically, if you're running your script within Eikon 4 on Windows, that means you're not allowed because you don't have the right variant version (Eikon Core is not allowed).

Did you run successfully before ?

Hello

Thanks for your answer. I'm a new user of Eikon, so this is the first time I use it and it never worked before. I use Eikon 4 on windows and R 3.5.3 (through Rstudio)
