Investigation Complete:

I finally got all lilypond enviroment variables right to run lilypond
standalone and produce a valid pdf file.
We need to copy this in Denemo.

...\denemo\usr\share\guile
...\denemo\usr\share\guile\1.8
...\denemo\usr\share\lilypond\current\scm //if we build lilypond git, its
"current"
...\denemo\usr\share\guile
...\denemo\usr\share\guile

PATH:
...\denemo\usr\bin
...\denemo\usr\lib

LILYPOND_DATA_PATH
...\denemo\usr\share\lilypond\current\

LILYPOND_VERBOSE
1

this last one is actually not needed, but may be nice for future testing.

Problems remain, two are just to inform you, the third is the real one:

1)PDFs show up from where path\to\lilypond.exe was invoked. Means: The current
working dir.

2)Running lilypond from the command line has problems. Maybe backslash\
escaping problems.
janneke: "and no-one uses the command line, apparently ;-)"

If you place the .ly file to the dir in %PATH% it works. And it works, if you
do it with a file association, that means the console it the reason that it
does not work (thats why I think its some escaping problem)

BUT (good news) from within Denemo these last two problems are no problems. The
file gets generated and ends in the right place.

3)However the ly/pdf file does not gets processed until Denemo is closed. Don't
ask me, I don't know why...
You see the lilypond terminal open all the time, but nothing happens, and if
you quit Denemo the processing begins and the pdf is right there.
