system-wide python installation (in path) breaks bundle #222

For some reason that I fail to understand, in some cases, Windows loads some .dlls in PATH directories instead of in the directory of the executable. And this can cause a myriad of problems (if those .dll are of different versions of the lib which are in the bundle, ...). One workaround is simply to set an empty PATH before running liam2/main.exe

This can be done via cmd:

cmd /c "set PATH=; && "$(NPP_DIRECTORY)\..\..\..\liam2\main" run "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)" -i"

It might also be doable via nppexec "ENV_SET" command.

ENV_SET PATH = ;  // modified
ENV_UNSET PATH  // restored
