This project is almost at a finalisation stage and I would like to  build an installshield  using  innosetup  for the windows version of my software. The ideal case would  be to also include the required 2.6 version of R  directly in the  installshield, but I am  more familiar with linux than  with windows, and the easyest way for me  do do that would probably be to  modify the innosetup script for R installation to include my files rather than the contrary...

R is GPL, and the script is part of the sources: it is generated by a Perl 
script src/gnuwin32/installer/JRins.pl.  So if you build R from the 
sources, you will get the script (R.iss).
