OK. Here are a few more questions for you:
1) Do the directories you specified in the ini exist? (they have to,
otherwise the directives are ignored)
2) You wrote you "placed [them] it in the directory from which I run the
texworks executable". Just to clarify, the texworks-setup.ini file must
be in the same folder where your TeXworks.exe file is (which is not
necessarily the directory from which you run it; you could e.g. be in
D:\Documents and then run C:\TeXworks\TeXworks.exe).

FWIW, Alain's mingw binaries work for me (granted, on a windows emulator
on linux, but still ;)).
