I've tried it just now and it works! I get all my citations and the list of references.
So the system is not finding the bib file. Which is puzzling because

I'm glad it's working, but it's not puzzling: the system path and where
LaTeX looks are two different, separate, and unrelated things. I don't
think that setting %PATH% is going to achieve anything for LaTeX: its
use is to set folders to find binaries, not data, as far as I remember.
I know that my default path for images is ~/texmf/tex/generic but that's
on a Unix-based system like Apple Mac or Linux. I believe
C:\texmf\tex\generic works on old Windows (and
Computer\System\Users\your~name\texmf\tex\generic on Win10) but only
under TeX Live, not MiKTeX. I have never tried it for .bib files.
MikTeX has its own set of paths which you specify in the application
settings manager, so perhaps one of them might apply to .bib files — ask
on the MikTeX mailing list.
And let us know — the wider this kind of information is spread, the
better for everyone.
