[Rd] Inno Setup 6.0.2 fails before creating exe file on Windows (R-3.6.0)

Multiple people have now reported that the R installer does not build
with InnoSetup 6 (released last week). The inno log shows this error:

  Error on line 12 in src\gnuwin32\installer\R.iss: Minimum NT version
specified by MinVersion must be at least 6.0. (Windows 2000/XP/Server
2003 are no longer supported.)
  Compile aborted.

Hence to fix this, the "MinVersion" parameter in
src/gnuwin32/installer/header1.iss should be increased from 0,5.0 to
0,6.0. I confirmed this resolves the problem. Could somebody commit
this please?
