That's right, some environment variables need to be set in this case.
Quoting from the README file for the Win32 version:

  You must add the "bin" subdirectory of the OCaml installation directory
  to the PATH variable, e.g.

          set PATH=%PATH%;D:\lang\ocaml\bin

  Running directly the tools (e.g. typing D:\lang\ocaml\bin\ocamlc)
  will not work if the "bin" subdirectory is not in PATH, because ocamlc
  and the other tools will be unable to find the Caml runtime system
  ocamlrun.exe.

  The command-line tools assume that the standard library resides in
  C:\ocaml\lib. If you have unpacked it elsehwere, define the CAMLLIB
  environment variable to point to the standard library directory, e.g.

          set CAMLLIB=D:\lang\ocaml\lib

  For Windows 95 and 98, the OCaml installer is able to perform the
  corresponding modifications to AUTOEXEC.BAT (define CAMLLIB and
  append to the PATH variable). For Windows NT, you'll have to
  edit the environment variables yourself.
