The easiest way is to put its directory in your PATH environment

Which is not the same as the above path, but that is probably just a
typo.  Anyhow, preview-latex looks for its Ghostscript in the variable
preview-gs-command instead.  Try setting that (its default on Windows
is likely "GSWIN32C.EXE" without explicit path).
