[ADMB Users] Environment Variables Issue?

After getting a new computer for work, I installed the admb-ide-440-2.exe
installer and things seemed fine, but when I tried to run an instance of a
project that had been compiled and run before (just copied the .tpl and
.dat file to a new folder), I get the following error at the run:

'wfm02_2009' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I read through the articles in the list serve that I could find concerning
this, but nothing jumped out at me..
I have walked through the checking of the environment variables with a
buddy at a different place to make sure that I have the equivalent that he
does, but feel that I must be missing something.

In User Variables, I have
ADMB_HOME         c:\ADMB\gcc440
HOME              c:\~
INCLUDE           c:\admb\gcc440
LIB               c:\admb\gcc440
PATH              c:\admb\gcc440\bin; c:\gnu\gcc\bin; c:\gnu\gdb\bin;

I thought I remembered having to tinker with something in the System
Variables part of the Env Variables last time I did an install, but cannot
remember what it was and we could not find anything corresponding to admb
in System variables on my colleagues computer.

I have tried the install twice (removing all signs of ADMB in between) but
to no avail.  I am not sure if there is something on the federal IT system
that is blocking it from creating the .exe file, but the furthest it gets
is creating a .cpp and .htp files.  When I try and run an old project with
a already created .exe file, it works just fine.

Can anyone help me out or let me know what kind of questions I should be
asking my IT folks?
Thanks a bunch..
