Sorry, my mistake.  IPEPDFLATEX no longer exists.

You could create a file "pdflatex.bat", and make that call "<correct 
path>/pdflatex --include-director=..", and then make sure that 
"pdflatex.bat" is on your path before the miktex pdflatex :-)

Another trick:  Modify runlatex.bat to include the --include-director=.. 
argument, and then make runlatex.bat read-only.  This should stop Ipe 
from overwriting it, and it should work.

No, it is a Lua script.  This doesn't help you, because the Windows 
distribution does not include the Lua interpreter - but that could be 
fixed relatively easily.  It's just that nobody asked for it yet.
