I installed Maxima 5.9.2 package for Windows on
a PC with Windows XP. I started XMaxima and when
I tried to run the help function an error occurred.
Here is a transcript of my Maxima 5.9.2 session:

---
Maxima 5.9.2 http://maxima.sourceforge.net
Using Lisp GNU Common Lisp (GCL) GCL 2.6.7 (aka GCL)
Distributed under the GNU Public License. See the file
COPYING.
Dedicated to the memory of William Schelter.
This is a development version of Maxima. The function
bug_report()
provides bug reporting information.
(%i1) ? integ

Maxima encountered a Lisp error:

failed to find info directory

Automatically continuing.
To reenable the Lisp debugger set *debugger-hook* to nil.
(%i2)

PS I ran the same command with Maxima 5.9.1 and that
worked as expected.
