path environment variable assembly


Eric Bentley

I have a user variable PATH set to c:\tools; and system variable Path
set to a number of different paths. When I open a cmd window and type
path, I see my path is assembled as:

PATH=<system Path><user PATH><system Path><specific application path>

I have not determined what is appending the system path a second time
and what is adding the specific application path either.

I have another machine that correctly assembles the path as:

PATH=<system Path><user PATH>

Any idea what is adding the extra assemblies to my path?

Thanks in advance.
