KiXtart 2001 Manual


Action: Sets environment variables in the environment of the local computer (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment).
Syntax: SETM "variable=string"
Remarks: After any change to the environment, KiXtart informs running programs that the change was made, prompting them to regenerate their environments. Programs that support this feature (such as Program Manager, Task Manager, and Windows Explorer) update their environments when they receive the WM_SETTINGCHANGE message.

The environment of the current process (KiXtart 95) is not affected.
This command does not work on Windows 9x. As an alternative, use the SHELL command to run Winset.exe. (Winset.exe is included on the Windows 9x CD.)
