Why does blast not work w/ Pathway Tools?

When I run Pathway Tools, either via the Hole Filler or in web mode, it is unable to find blast even though I have it installed.

Pathway Tools uses the system's PATH environmental variable to find where external programs are installed. By default, when BLAST is installed, it may only add the path to blast binaries to the user's default path, not the system's default path. Please review the Pathway Tools BLAST installation guide for details:

Once BLAST is added to the default search path, you'll need to restart Pathway Tools for it to find the blast executables.
