AUCTeX simply runs `call-process' to start the viewer, then I think it
should be Emacs' duty to find the executable if it has been properly
installed (i.e., the installer changed the appropriate registry keys),
but I don't know if this happens on Windows.

I'd like to provide a default value of `TeX-view-program-list-builtin'
that works for as many users as possible, hard-coding a path defeats
this goal, for example for you, if you have it C:\Local, and people
using the portable version that I guess can be placed anywhere.
