Sorry for the delay. Here is the info you requested:

exec-path is a variable defined in `C source code'.
Its value is
("c:/Windows/system32" "C:/Windows" "C:/Windows/System32/Wbem" "C:/Windows/System32/WindowsPowerShell/v1.0/" "\"C:/Program Files/Tools/\"" "\"C:/Program Files/Gtk2.14/bin\"" "\"C:/Apps/cygwin/bin\"" "C:/Program Files/TortoiseSVN/bin" "c:/Program Files/emacs/bin" "c:/Program Files/emacs/lib-src/oo-spd/i386" "c:/Program Files/emacs/lib-src/oo/i386")

C:\Users\buchs>echo %path%
owsPowerShell\v1.0\;"C:\Program Files\Tools\";"C:\Program Files\Gtk2.14\bin";"C:
\Apps\cygwin\bin";C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin

Same thing happens with -Q

Message is:
Computing differences between ediff7004ZkQ and ...
apply: Searching for program: no such file or directory, diff

Please show your value of PATH and of exec-path.  I'm guessing that
exec-path is different from PATH.

Also, does the same problem happen when you invoke Emacs as
"emacs -Q"?

And what was the exact wording of the error message printed when you
tried invoking Ediff?
