I take half of my question back. After removing "binaryPaths=" (with
some meaningless setting) from texworks.ini, the location of
texworks.exe is already in binary path (which is exactly what I wanted
to achieve).

If binaryPaths is already present in texworks.ini then defaultbinpaths
in texwork-setup.ini made no difference and that was puzzling me a bit
(visually the path was empty when I cheched in the program, but in
reality there was binaryPaths=@invalid sitting in texworks.ini).
