I see your point, but is it possible or usual to install a program
under a path different from the default one? Is it different for,
say, 32- or 64-bit programs?

We have other default viewers for Windows, none of them has an
hard-coded path, how do they work, if they work at all?

I see, but instead of adding directories to PATH you have to manually
specify paths to your programs anyway. Of course, the problem is not
you, but the way Windows works.
