Every program inherits the PATH from the application it is launched
from.  When you launch Emacs or any other program from a desktop
shortcut, the Windows Explorer shell injects your user's environment
variables into the environment it passes to Emacs.  But most other
applications never do anything like that when they run sub-programs,
and the default is to inherit the environment of the parent.
