[Rd] texi2pdf doesn't find the correct MikTex installation due to erroneous Sys.which()

I checked after this question popped up on Stackoverflow:


On Windows, texi2pdf looks for the texify.exe of Miktex, but looks in a
very wrong place:

> Sys.which("texify")

That folder is not on my computer (I have 2.9 installed), not in my path,
not in my system path and I couldn't find it in my register. So it appears
as if Sys.which() is looking in the wrong place.

What could cause this?

Kind regards
