in thread ENV PATH didn't take effect

Thank you for the response. In fact, I changed the Path variable using Perl by TieRegistry. The system path do changed. But the click-opened command prompt didn't. If it didn't propagate to all users, I've already logged in as administrator, why I should right click opened "run as administrator" to see this change is beyond my understanding. I expect after I added the PATH env, all users can use it, no need to set it manually any more.

    The change, if made permanent, may take effect after a logoff/logon.

    The environment on disk is copied to your live environment on logon.

    Changing the config on disk does not followup in memory right away.
