Try this.  Copy the file ess/doc/info/dir back to ess/doc/dir
Let us know if that solves the problem.  The normal behavior is
that the dir file is read at emacs startup when the line in site-start.el or .emacs

(add-to-list 'Info-default-directory-list "c:/emacs/ess-5.2.1/doc/info/")

tells emacs where to look.  The dir file then places the ESS info on the *info*
startup menu.   Maybe putting the dir file in your location will help.
