Here we have:

echo %path%

Unfortunately, that didn't the trick. We still have the following error:

configuration file texmf.cnf not found in these directories:
c:/Program Files/Evince/2.30.0/bin;
c:/Program Files/Evince/2.30.0;
c:/Program Files/Evince;
c:/Program Files/Evince/2.30.0/bin/share/texmf-local/web2c;
c:/Program Files/Evince/2.30.0/share/texmf-local/web2c;
c:/Program Files/Evince/share/texmf-local/web2c;

We didn't make any change in this file.

Thanks! Nevertheless, any idea? :)
