I use for a long time AIDA64 and his predecessor.

But never i could use AIDA64 for my SurfaceRT 64 GB

Is there a solution for this ?

Windows RT (which is the operating system running on Surface RT) doesn't support Win32 apps, but only Windows Store apps.  AIDA64 is available in the Windows Store as a Windows Store app, Windows Phone 8.1 app as well as a Windows 10 UWP app.  That's not the same as our main product (AIDA64 for Windows PCs), but only a light-weight free app that's designed to work well on phones and tablets.

The successor to Windows RT, Windows 10 ARM is well supported by our main product because it has Win32 app execution capabilities through x86 emulation.  It would be awesome if Microsoft backported Windows 10 ARM to Surface RT, since that would unlock running Win32 apps as well, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that due to the low amount of Windows RT based devices sold :(
