Say, I found the first problem!  :)
I was still thinking in terms of the way I've been packaging things.  In
cygwin environment, most people will have unix style codec paths, so I
probably shouldn't pass those to the windows environment "as is."
    SetEnvironmentVariableA("PATH", WIN32_PATH);
Damn.  So, I'm off to find the function to convert posix path to windows

Sorry for the bad patch,
