    Adrian,

    There are some API's for manipulating the environment. They are
    detailed in win32.hlp.

    It's been my experience that it is IMPOSSIBLE to set/change an
    environment variable in the MASTER environment after 32-bit Windows
    has booted. However, the API's allow you to mainpulate the
    variables in the process's own, child environment.

    Regards,

      Hi Clay, unfortunatly I'm calling my program from inside a CMD file (.bat for non-W2k/NT people) so it needs to be a master type enviroment variable.
      Suppose it'll be the registry hack approach !
