Max,

Sorry, it doesn't look like the installer was modified in this release.  It appears that Erlang uses the NullSoft Install System.  The files used to build the installer are in "erts/etc/win32/nsis" (http://github.com/erlang/otp/tree/ccase/r13b04_dev/erts/etc/win32/nsis/).

There seems to be two installer scripts:  erlang.nsi and erlang20.nsi.  They look like they are each used in turn for different versions of the installer system.

On the web, I found the following information about using NSIS to modify the path of a system:

> http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Environmental_Variables:_append,_prepend,_and_remove_entries


I have no idea if this is really useful information.  Unfortunately, I don't have the environment necessary to build OTP for Windows, so I can't make a patch for you.  I hope you can figure it out or find someone who can.  Good luck, and I look forward to seeing the patch come through.
