The problem appears to be that the OS interface that Gnucash is using 
(mingw?) does not support the use of the Unix variable names, 
specifically LC_CURRENCY, to override what's in the OS locale settings. 
There may be environment variables it will respond to, but we don't know 
what they are.

FWIW, I have verified that changing things "the Windows way", via 
Settings -> Control panel -> Regional and language options, does change 
what Gnucash shows (next time you start it up), but that's a user-
specific rather than application-specific approach. Fine for me, but 
apparently not for the OP.
