As Thien-Thi Nguyen says you can set infopath, and as Eli Zaretski says
that should work.  The path needs to be set so that it's seen by Emacs.
You have to make sure the value isn't just local to some instance of
cmd.exe.

I don't do that, instead I do something like this:

(setq Info-additional-directory-list '("C:/MinGW/msys/1.0/share/info"))

Note that the "dir" file in directory you specify has to be correct.
There can sometimes be problems with this on Mingw and derivatives.  You
can check that it's correct by running command line info.

BR,
