Things I would check to narrow this down:

1. Do all of your own include directories fail or only some?
2. If you copy one of your include files into a standard directory
    (v3.6\include or v3.7\include), will it be loaded from there?
3. If you create a new directory in a public location (e.g. c:\test)
    and add this to the library path, will it work?
4. If not, does it help to remove the other library path entries
    from the ini file (including, FWIW, the commented one).
5. Does it make a difference running as Administrator?
6. Does it make a difference to disable script i/o restrictions?
7. Are the capitalizations correct (shouldn't matter on Windows
    but you never know which piece of code chokes on it).
