That is actually the last place it looks in. The message that you get "can't find c:\windows\system32\program.exe" is misleading.

Same as on windows:
- CD into that directory (current directory is the first to look for the program.exe)
- Specify full path to the executable
- Add directory with the executable it to the PATH
