  Cannot find INI file

I am using Povray via the command line from my Euler (euler.rene-grothmann.de)
program. The command line is the following

pvengine.exe /NR /EXIT +H450 +W450 +FN24 +A -D /RENDER

"pvengine.exe" is in the path. The command is called with CreateProcess. This
works well in Windows 7. It renders the file and, since I set the current
directory properly, I can find the PNG output.

However, it does not work in Windows XP. The Povray program opens and does
nothing. If I open the pov file there, and try to run it it says INI file not
found. If I try to run this from a command line, it says INI file not found
right away. If I open Povray with the provided Windows icon and load the file,
it works.

So how can I direct Povray with a command line to find the INI files?

Thanks for assistance,
