Have you tried copying the values in the path string in the registry, deleting the path string in the registry, and then recreating the path string and pasting what you copied?

You would type path=echo %path% into the command prompt. That should allow you to do what you want to do. If that works, try the registry method I just mentioned in my most recent post.

No, I mean copying what is currently in the string by selecting within the text box after double clicking the String Value and selecting all the information and copying it. Then delete the STRING VALUE (the entry in the registry that says Path with the ab next to it). Then, right click at the bottom of the list and select New -> String Value to create a String Value. Name that String Value as Path. Paste the information you just copied into that String Value's text box after double clicking the box, or before hitting OK.

Have you closed all windows and restarted your cmd.exe program? Paths do not show up immediately. The program using them must be closed and restarted first.
