Summary0000421: freesteam kills correct behaviour of ASCENDLIBRARY
Description
When freesteam 2.0 is installed, it sets ASCENDLIBRARY to include the location of the freesteam ascend files.

But this breaks ASCEND, if ASCENDLIBRARY is not already set, because the default c:\Program Files\ASCEND\Models folder is then missing from the path and is not automatically re-added in any way.

Requires (yet another) rethink about how we handle PATH variables across the different platforms...

Workarounds:
- force ASCEND to set PATH during Windows installation version 0.9.7.
- force freesteam to check that the ASCEND path is present in PATH also.
