If you use the 64 bits version, open a MSYS2 shell and

$ cd /mingw64/share/info
$ for f in *.info; do install-info.exe $f dir; done
$ for f in *.info.gz; do install-info.exe $f dir; done

If you use the 32 bits version, replace mingw64 with mingw32 above.

Yes. Somehow the dir file is not created (or is deleted) when Emacs is
installed. I need to investigate why.
