Clumsy IMHO. Try:
c:\> envtool --path *ipython*

Matches in %PATH:
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython-script.py
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython.exe
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython.exe.manifest
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython2-script.py
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython2.exe
      12 Feb 2015 - 17:16:12: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython2.exe.manifest
      08 Feb 2015 - 12:48:56: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\Scripts\ipython_win_post_install.py
7 matches found for "*ipython*".

-------------------

Or find a spec on *all partitions* using Everything Search engine:
c:\> envtool --evry *ipython*
Matches from EveryThing:
...
133 matches found for "*ipython*".

-------------------

Or for Python-path searches:
c:\> envtool --python *ipython*
Matches in "f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\python.exe" sys.path[]:
      23 Jan 2016 - 13:50:30: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\lib\site-packages\ipython-2.1.0-py2.7.egg\IPython\
      23 Jan 2016 - 13:50:26: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\lib\site-packages\IPython\
      23 Jan 2016 - 13:50:30: f:\ProgramFiler\Python27\lib\site-packages\ipython-2.1.0-py2.7.egg\
3 matches found for "*ipython*".
