Your concept of "totally clear" lacks a good deal of clarity.  You
pretty much ignored providing any indication of what your problem is,
how you expect to run R if you can't run an executable file, or just
about ANY useful information that could allow someone to help you
other than something you might have read seven or eight years ago. 

At a wild guess you can't write to the hard drive of what ever system
you are hoping to use and do not have rights to execute programs on
that system.  A way around that would be to run your software from a
thumb drive or similar external device.  So you might look at R
Portable (https://sourceforge.net/projects/rportable/) which employs
the PortableApps framework, but with such a sweeping lack of
information from you, don't congratulate yourself if you get a helpful
answer.  It wasn't your fault.
