oystercatcher Posted May 27, 2005 Share Posted May 27, 2005 I recently installed a science program called delta on win2k. My systemhas c:\drdos and d:\win2k. The program inserted some variablesin win2k including CDPATH c:\delta I deleted the string as it wascausing problems so can only include part of the original string.The first symptom something was wrong was when I tried to compilea program using mingw in d:\tmp and I couldnt cd to a subdirunless I gave it the full path. Also make failed as it had some cdcommands. At first I thought it was the registry parseauto butafter checking it found it ok. So then I started looking at thesystem variables and found the stuff from the delta install.My question is this: How should this variable be set and not have unintended consequences?
