Environment Path Variable Capture?

Hi there, I am currently capturing a package that has Oracle 10g runtimes that require a Path Variable amended to the main System Path in Environment Variables.

The package adds this but it does not seem to be present when the MSI is then run. Also should it not scan AllUsers\Desktop and Start Menu for any manually added shortcuts?

There was a free command line utility in Microsoft's Windows 2000 Resource Kit called PATHMAN (with an associated PATHMAN.DOC). That utility makes it easy to add to or remove from the PATH variable, either the user's PATH or the system PATH.

Here's quick introduction: http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/tips/jsi-tip-7603-pathman-exe-is-a-command-line-tool-that-adds-or-removes-components-from-the-system-and-user-paths-.aspx Sande

There's also an AutoIt script called ModPath which will do this too...

Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
