comment What is the range of ports that is usually used in the traceroute command?
ICMP is the standard way to do a traceroute, UDP is nonstandard. I'd suggest a default range above port 1000 so that you don't need to be root to run your program. If you need to have a live service on the other end, then look at the list of well known ports and offer some of them as defaults. If you don't need a service on the other end, then ports above 10000 are somewhat less likely to have services running on them.

Why do you prefer a UDP packet over the standard ICMP echo?

comment How to downmix stereo output to mono on Mac OS X
This seems appropriate here, but could also be appropriate over at Audio-Video production. Can an answer be linked without being moved? Mods?

Windows environment variables are only global if you set them globally via the control panel. If you set environment variables in a cmd window, they will remain local to that window.
