@Comspec Path

5 posts in this topic

I've nosed about in the help file and searched the forum ... and maybe I'm not finding it ... But is there a native function to return the path variable of the comspec?

(Open CMD shell, type "Path")

MsgBox(0, "Result", EnvGet("Comspec"))

Edit:

Sorry misread the post

MsgBox(0, "Result", EnvGet("Path"))

Edit 2:

The list of the available environment variables is here

Thats a very handy but seldom used function so we do tend to forget it.

You can also do what you want with out EnvGet() using Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1) instead.

Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
MsgBox(0, "Result", "%path%")
