I'm trying to add
C:\Program Files\Common Files\xxx\xxx to the system PATH environment variable by appending
%CommonProgramFiles%\xxx\xxx to the existing path.
After rebooting, I open a command prompt and check the PATH. It expands correctly. However, when using Process Explorer from
Sysinternals to view the Environment variables on
services.exe, it shows the unexpanded version. Coincidentally, the paths using
%SystemRoot% expand and are recognized just fine.
I've tried altering the PATH through the Environment Variables window from System Properties and through direct Registry manipulation, neither seems to work.
Is it possible to use other environment variables, besides
%SystemRoot% in PATH and have
services.exe understand it?
