Updating path variable

This will have no net effect on the path with the possible exception of changing the text case of the specified segment.Multiple segments are not supported by this option.The PATH variable contains a list of semicolon delimited folder paths that Windows uses when locating files.Replace will replace the specified part of the PATH variable.If the environment variable does not exist, then the Replace action creates a new environment variable.Today I had to make similar changes to 10 Windows servers.

Alternatively you could use ' SETX' instead of a .

The Windows path variable has its roots way back in MSDOS, which means it's been around for over 30 years.

Basically the path is a list of directories (or folders) to be searched when a command runs.

The behavior of the preference item varies with the action selected and whether the environment variable already exists. The net result of the Replace action is to overwrite all existing settings associated with the environment variable.

A separate option to specify the PATH system variable is available.
