The python path can be set in the project properties, though from your 
description I don't know what your issue was.

Setting the PYTHONPATH on Windows does work in Wing and on Windows. 
There are times when it must be set for things to work.  In your case, 
it may be that the PYTHONPATH was set incorrectly and you saw the 
problem in Wing or it may be something else.

I'm glad you got things working.
