IPython cell magics?

My IPython Notebook (IPython 3.1.0, Python3.4, windows7) shows all the magics I would expect when I do

, however when I try to run the
magic, I get an error:
Couldn't find program: 'python2'
, do I have to set an environment variable for the cell magic?

on the command line Python 2 has to a start.
