We've installed Oracle Express on a Windows 2003 Server and in the process it updated the PATH. We're trying to get IIS to see this change in the PATH but we can't figure it out. We've recycled the app pool and the IIS site with no success. Is there any way to get it to recognize without restarting IIS itself? It's a prod server so we don't want to reset IIS.

You'll have to recycle the IIS process to get it to update, I'm afraid. Global environment is inherited when the process starts and for most apps the only way to get it to update is to restart the process. It's a pain, but at least it is something you can plan for.
