What is the error message, please?

Please do, it will help to understand the problem.

I suspect that the problem is your use of a period `.' in a node name (or 
was it a name of an anchor?).  This cannot be allowed, currently, because 
if we allow it, it will confuse Info browsers or TeX (or both).  This 
restriction on node names is documented in the Texinfo manual.

But I might have guessed wrong the actual nature of the problem; seeing 
the Texinfo source would help diagnose the problem unambiguously.
