Linking Github and RStudio Problem

Hello friends,
While I am watching Data Scientist's Toolbox from Coursera, in one lecture I encounter a problem.

this is the picture I see on lecture. You see SVN executable path is already assigned. But in my RStudio SVN executable pathway wasn't assigned so I try to assign it somewhere. The problem is I don't know what SVN executable is, therefore I assign wrong path.

The main problem is I cannot create SSH RSA Key. When I try for the create SSH RSA Key RStudio says permission denied.

Can someone explain to me what is SVN executable path and why it isn't signed already as the instructor RStudio's. Why I can't create SSH RSA Key.

I am using the last version of RStudio.

platform x86_64-w64-mingw32
arch x86_64
os mingw32
system x86_64, mingw32

language R
version.string R version 4.0.5 (2021-03-31)

SVN is a version control software like git, if you are going to be using git, there is no need to install and configure SVN, so you can let that field empty.

From the screenshot it seems to me you already have an ssh key in place and RStudio doesn't have permissions to overwrite it.

First of all, thank you for explanining what SVN executable. As you sad, even I can't create a SSH RSA Key I can commit and push files to the github from RStudio.

The second thing you sad, there is a misunderstood. The Screenshot isn't from my computer. It's from instructors computer. So in my computer There isn't any View public key, and also when I try to create RSA Key, I encounter a Error written Permission Denied.

This is not related to RStudio's configuration but to your user's permissions, try running RStudio with administrator rights or check your user's write permissions.
