I set my Path environment variable to look like this:

E:\Programy\Python; ... all the rest

but after I have it all confirmed and call env in command line, E:\Programy\Python is not listed there. How is that?

What is env ? How did you set the environment variable ? Did you try SET / PATH to list it ? – Ofiris Jul 2 '13 at 20:14
@Ofiris It displays environmental variables like Path – Louis Jul 2 '13 at 20:16
@Louis, aint it in Unix ? – Ofiris Jul 2 '13 at 20:17
@Ofiris No, he tagged it as Windows 8. – Louis Jul 2 '13 at 20:18

After modifying the PATH you need to close the Command Prompt window and reopen it for the changes to take effect.

See What are PATH and other environment variables, and how can I set or use them? for details regarding how to properly modify the PATH environment variable via the UI or command line (using set/setx) in Windows 8. – Karan Jul 2 '13 at 20:22
