The same general concept should work on Windows, except that setting
environment variables is typically different. AFAICT, init.bat doesn't
implement an equivalent of ~/.grass.bashrc, although that wouldn't be
hard to add. Alternatively, you could start grass via a batch file
which set those variables first.
