I don't know what explorer uses. But bzr itself tries

$BZR_EDITOR
'editor' in bazaar.conf
$VISUAL
$EDITOR

# windows
  wordpad.exe
  notepad.exe
# linux
  /usr/bin/editor
  vi
  pico
  nano
  joe


My best guess is that one of these is actually in your path but without
permissions. My second guess is that Explorer isn't using the bzr search
path.
