Problem with package ifpdf

I am testing BaKoMa, opened one simple document (a thesis template) and get an error when BaKoMa tries to open ifetex.sty, although I can see the file is where expected This is e-TeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6 (BaKoMa TNS 9.0) entering extended mode (Plantilla-TFM.tex LaTeX2e <2016/03/31> patch level 3 Babel <3.9r> and hyphenation patterns for 55 language(s) loaded.

The package ifetex is:

It requires the file ietex.tex, which is in folder:

However, BaKoMa TeX reads folders 'latex' and 'generic' as recommended by TeX Directory Standard:

TeXLive, finally, searches also top of folder ($TEXDIR/tex//),
it is probably to avoid such situations with wrongly placed package components.

How to solve the problem ?

Simplest way si to add search in plain folder in TEXMF.INI file.

So, for e-LaTeX I suggest following change:

ID=e-LaTeX 2e
Info=LaTeX 2e with Extended TeX (e-TeX) processor.

old string:
new string:

Version 11.21 (for Windows) revision 170127 includes this fix.

Just download it and agree to update.
All records in TEXMF.INI will be fixed.
