"Does my answer yesterday to Øystein's question affect whether you need to move the shar folder? "
The short answer is No. In fact, I don't understand how your answer would fix Øystein's problem (see the long answer below). Though I freely admit that I have no idea at all about the intracacies of Bruce and Matt's excellent code.
The long answer:
Knowing that there were environment variables that needed to be set, I always ran use_ifeffit.bat as the first step. That Bat file contains all of the commands you said to use in yesterday's post. Regardless, your advice in that post doesn't work for me.
I can tell that the BAT file sets the environmental variables correctly. For example, on my work computer Iffeffit does not dwell in C:\Program Files, it dwells in Applications. After using the correct Batch file, The error message that I get trying to start athena from the command line is now
can't open C:\Applications\Ifeffit\bin\share\perl\Xray\space_groups.db: No such
file or directory at /PerlApp/Xray/Xtal.pm line 116
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /PerlApp/Ifeffit/Files.pm line 50.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at athena line 96.
Note that the Directory C:\Program Files\... is now correctly C:\Applicaitons\...
Therefore, it seems to me that there is an extra directory in the path for that file, and that setting the environment variables can't make it go away. If it read, "C:\Applications\Ifeffit\share\...." instead of "C:\Applications\Ifeffit\bin\share..." everything would be OK. The impact of the environment variables occurs earlier in the file path.

Wow! Great work. I'm going to make a FAQ entry that points to your post.
Does my answer yesterday to Øystein's question affect whether you need to move the shar folder?
