What is a way for a novice user to retreive the environment variables on an XP machine?
I need to ask a user to do this but it needs to be very simple and easy to copy into an email.
Is better use SET on CMD to get all enviroiment variable. PATH only returns you PATH variable not all variables in the enviroment.
I guess you could put this in a batch file and have them just double-click it.
@echo off set > paths.txt
Then have the user email the paths.txt to you.
I would suggest getting information from GUI thing is much easier and simple as getting it from command-prompt or batch file for a novice user.
Whenever I want to check my environment variables by:
Environment Variablesbutton, Click it, or Press
It will open up the dialog that gives information about all Environment variables.
