Thank you very much for your help - that fixed it. Sorry I did not see it in the manual.

Set the environment variable R_LIBS in your commands windows/shell. As the manual says: @quotation Note @code{R CMD check} and @code{R CMD build} run @R{} with @option{--vanilla}, so none of the user's startup files are read. If you need @env{R_LIBS} set (to find packages in a non-standard library) you will need to set it in the environment. @end quotation
