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.
