in reply to ENV Path didn't take effect

Modifying %ENV only affects the current process and any child processes it happens to start.

It does not affect its parent; nor other non-child processes started afterwards.

And it definitely does not change the registry.

If you want to change the registry; use a module designed to do that. (Hint: search CPAN for the word "registry")
