Adding / Changing Environment variables

7 posts in this topic

Is there a way to access the Environment Variables and add new ones or modify the User and System sections? Same as going to My Computer | Advanced | Environment Variables...

Thanks

Hi,

Try looking at the registry keys:

HKCU\Environment

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

And RegRead/RegWrite

Thanks guys for the input. I will have a look at it shortly.

I am not familiar with the registry, but do need to add User Variables for an automated software install using Autoit.

If any one has an example showing how to add a Variable and Value to the User Environment settings, it would be appreciated.

Variable : CDS_SITE

Value: C:\Software\install

Thanks.

Hey,

Here is an example of importing the above data into the User Variables:

RegWrite("HKCU\Environment", "CDS_SITE", "REG_SZ", "C:\Software\Install")
MsgBox(64, "Done!", "Finished!")
