Changing PATH on NT

by TimTheToolMan In reply to Changing PATH on NT

Hi,

My memory is a little vague... But I think off the control panel, choose system. One of the tabs has "environment variables".

Here is where you set the path. Make sure you set it as a "system" environment variable if you want it available system wide - not just for your current logon.

Cheers,
Tim.

And make sure you click "Set" before you click "Apply" or "OK".

From the command-line, type "set path" This will show you the current path variables. If your goal is to add to the path statement, you can copy the path that was displayed and type "set path" and then paste in the path you copied. Add a semi-colon at the end and then type the path that you want to add.

The other option is to use the system control panel's environment variables area and add on to the path statement from the GUI. Don't delete the path and put in a new one, just append your new path to the end of the existing one. You might also weed out some paths that are obsolete, such as paths that refer to directories that you have deleted.

Some clarification on Answer1:

Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Environment tab.

Scroll down the list until you get to Path, and click it.

In the lower Value box, scroll to the end, type a semicolon ";" then the path you want to add. When done, click Set then OK.
