I want to prepend a directory to the windows path (I am running Windows 7 64-bit). However I can not find any way to do this:
- Changing the PATH variable via the GUI is not working as it is always appending.
- Changing the PATH with setx does not prepend neither:
setx PATH "new_dir:%PATH%"
However I need the path prepended, because I want to add the gnu_utils directory before any other directory so Windows uses the gnu find when running find, and not it's own find alias.
Installing Cygwin and using BASH unfortunately is not an option.
I think I should have clarified that I also can not modify the System PATH - only the user PATH.
