I often use the right-click "open command window here" feature of Windows-7, but just found a problem where the environment it gives is different than what I get on running cmd from the start line, or from the start menu cmd.
Specifically for me there are things which are in my PATH (verified from MyComputer/properties/advanced/environment) which are missing in the right-click environment, correctly present in the others.
Why? Any easy fix?
W7 seems to use the command: cmd.exe /s /k pushd "%V" for the right-click option.
It seems that there are multiple cmd.exe’s around, one is C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe, another in c:\Windows\sysWOW64, and a few others lying around under c:/Windows, but both give the wrong PATH environment. I am not sure what the start-menu cmd actually starts!
