You must add the directory c:\pp\bin\win32 to the PATH
(replace c:\pp with whatever directory you installed FPC under)

To do this, set a statement in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file:
SET PATH=%PATH%;c:\pp\bin\win32

Enter the same command at the command line, and it should work.

this is also in the manual.
