We have no idea at all where you are looking, but you are not following the instructions in the `R Installation and Administration Manual'. There are both source and binary Windows versions on CRAN, thanks to the kind helpers who prepare the latter for you.

Use the menus, as described in the FAQs and manuals. Go to the Packages menu. select Install packages ..., select a CRAN mirror and then the package. That's all.
