there are 2 things to specify:

- the path in which the system has to look for, typically
c:\Program Files\LilyPond\usr\bin\
you can check this with "set path" in the command shell.

- a program that is supposed to run programs with a specific extension -
here it is ".py"; check this with "set pathext" as above
if .py is not included in this variable, you can add it in the "standard
program definitions" (or similar)

[note that the command "set path" will display both these variables]
