Putting these into the path would also not help.
- you can not run
- you must use python - But if you do, you must say: python "c:\program files\lilypond\usr\bin\" So you didn't gain much.

Still I don't see it is useful.

Perhaps we should look at the possibilities of packaging LilyPond with JEdit + Java + LilyPondTool. Actually Java license allows to distribute the runtime with your application, jEdit is GPL. Neither Java, nor jEdit needs anything written to the registry to work, they just can be zipped together. So we could make a directory structure like this:

Program Files
- LilyPond
-- usr
-- bin
-- java
--- bin
---- javaw.exe
-- jedit
--- jars
---- LilyPondTool.jar
---- Console.jar
---- ...

And make a shortcut that runs:
c:\Program Files\LilyPond\java\bin\javaw.exe -jar c:\Program Files\LilyPond\jedit\jedit.jar

The download size would not be small:
LilyPond 18MB
jEdit 2MB
jEdit plugins 15MB
Java runtime 24MB

That is 59MB.


Since midi2ly, lilypond-book and the other utility scripts are not available
via any graphical interface.
