I apologise if you've tried this and verified it to be the case, but
I would have expected a notification message to be required, since
Emacs is started as a subprocess of explorer.exe, and inherits its
environment. Perhaps you are thinking of the case where a user
manually changes the environment using the control panel applet, in
which case, the applet will take care of sending this notification
