Would you be willing to try a daily build? You will get more diagnostics, as well as a "copy problem report" that you can paste here for better help:

Thank you! I found a solution, I ran this command : /Applications/RStudio.app/Contents/MacOS/RStudio --run-diagnostics

And the problem was that I had installed R in a root folder
