I am deeply sorry to possibly upset you even more 
(and I thought hard about re-posting), 
but I still stand by my original post 
(and the subsequent clarifications...).
On Windows (I just tested XP, Vista & 7 - 
no access to 8+), there's absolutely no need 
to add anything in PATH if the executables 
are to be found within current directory! 
George Eycott's contribution also atests to that fact:
I realise now there's no point in me 
trying to pursue this further with you, 
so I'll put an end to this here; 
I created enough "unnecessary noise" 
so far, it appears...

 Your flu recipes are indeed most welcome; 
however I am not a spirits person myself, 
so hot cocoa it is for me, then!

Keep always well (and I will, too),
