PATH values changed/disapear when logging into a 2003 domain

Hi !
I have classroom with windows XP installed, connected to a windows 2003
server domain. Users mostly use a local account on those machines to log in.
I have lots of installed software there, so the path is quite large.
when users log in with the domain account, the PATH only shows information
about 2 softwares, causing some others to fail (like eclipse, because java is
not in path). But if they log in locally, everythings works fine and PATH is
complete.
I have no policy restrictions in that domain. It's used mainly as a trust
relationship domain.
Any ideas please ?
thanks and regards

Hi - see my reply to your identical post elsewhere - please don't multipost!
You may have trouble
accessing these groups properly because you're using the icky web interface.
For this and for many other reasons, I suggest you try using a news client,
such as Forte Agent, Thunderbird, or even Outlook Express, instead. It's a
lot easier to do nearly everything that way. You can mark messages to be
watched, filter the views so you can see replies to your posts easily, and
search.

The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
subscribe to as many groups as you like; no authentication is required.

Ok, thanks.
Anyway I solved it. Remote "reg add
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session
Manager\Environment" and the set path.
Why dis happened is still a mistery.
thanks

The real answer is to not use local accounts when you've got a domain :)
