Next stupid question...
Ok, say I want to run Vim in the Windows (XP) command prompt. But, I want it to run the version from Program Files and not system32 each time I type 'vim'
Please note that I do not want to type C:\Prog Files\Vim.... each and every time...just 'vim'
So, I thought I could simply add it to the registry by adding a key to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths, but that only applies to the Run command.
Is there something similar to enable it to be run from cmd? I tried adding a shortcut to it and renamed to 'vim.exe' but cmd doesn't recognize shortcuts as valid exes.
