Hi Giuseppe,

I don't use Windows myself but did some work in this area recently to make
it work it on os x so I'm familiar with the code a bit. I think the only
thing you need to do is to put the location of geany.exe into your PATH
environment variable so geany can find it (it just tries to run geany
without checking any additional paths).
