Setting INFOPATH in the environment does work for me.  Please describe
how you set that variable, and how you invoke Emacs.  E.g., if you
invoke Emacs from the desktop shortcut, you need to set INFOPATH via
right-clicking on "Computer", selecting "Advanced", and editing the
Environment Variables list there.

Likewise, please describe how you tried to customize that variable.
Also, does the value of Info-directory-list in the running Emacs
reflect your customizations?
