[R] How to create an executable file from R GUI?

That is the very reason why I've given up on Tck/Tk, in favor of shiny.
The user interface opens up in a webpage, without opening the normal R
console (it only opens a Terminal window).
To exemplify, package QCAGUI has a function called runGUI(), and on Windows
it's a simple matter of creating a .bat file,
which for my user interface it only contains this:
TITLE QCA Qualitative Comparative Analysis
C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-3.2.3/bin/R.exe --slave --no-restore -e
The double click on the .bat file, and that's it.
I hope it helps,
