New to Julia- Having difficulty getting setup


#1

Hi, first time user of Julia. I previously used R in VisualStudio, and prior to that C++ in VS. I followed the instructions for installing Atom and several packages that seemed like would be useful for my studies (I am a grad student).

I installed the package DataFrames, and I immediately get an error when trying to use it. Am I missing some step in the configuration?

Code:

using Regression
using DataFrames

println("hello")

Error:

Error evaluating Problem3.jl
LoadError: Failed to precompile DataFrames to C:\Users\Clinton\.julia\lib\v0.5\DataFrames.ji.

Nevermind- bizarre. I tried a few times more after opening and restarting the IDE etc. and it just started working. I guess it just needed to be kicked a few times.
