I imagine this means the directory you are trying to add to the path is not organized internally according to the TeX Directory Structure. For example, in a TDS-compliant texmf tree, LaTeX input files go to texmf/tex/latex, PostScript fonts in texmf/fonts/type1, MetaFont sources to texmf/fonts/source, and so forth.

I'm not a Windows user and am not familiar with MikTeX, unfortunately. Does texdoc exist on it? If so, then run "texdoc kpathsea" and look at section 2.4 giving a brief summary of TDS. Otherwise see <http://mirror.ctan.org/info/doc-k/kpathsea.pdf>.
