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.
