gnubg (for windows) has to be started in the directory where it's
installed otherwise it won't find all the necessary files. 

A possible workaround is to specify the -d option, e.g.,

gnubg -d "C:\Program Files\gnubg"

for the action when clicking an SGF file.

For the developers:

Isn't there some environment variable we can query or some function we
can call that'll return the path to "program files"? Or will this only
work if installed in the default suggested directory? Is it somehow
possible to find out where gnubg was installed?

If possible, it should be trivial to initialise the data directory with
this value.
