Modifying Environment Variables

2 posts in this topic

I want to be able to modify some environment variables in the system properties.

These happen to be the PATH and CLASSPATH variables.

As it cannot be guarenteed whether these are e.g. the 3rd or 4th parameter in the list, therefore enabling me to step down to them, does anyone have any idea how to script the edit.

RegRead() the current values, do string manipulations as required, then RegWrite().

Look for the values at "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment".

:P
