Cannot get path to work.

Hi.
I need to be able to make a path to a file.
The path I have made doesn't work.

Darkhorse, system variables work differently. What you can do is to append to your %PATH% statement
to add the full path to the executable to the end of the existing path statement. But a caution, the path statement has a limitation of around 256 characters so it could mess things up if you added to the path statement of variables.

Your file is not in the existing path so that's why it can't be found.

all command line files that include spaces in directories require enclosure in " marks.

the file name adb.exe is not necessary if you are trying to set the path to include thedirectory where adb.exe is located.

The path to a file includes the complete folder hierarchy for the system to locate the file but does not include the filename itself. Therefore, in order for adb.exe to be found via the PATH environment variable, you need to set it like so:
Code:
C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\;C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraCompare\;D:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\
In addition, adb.exe MUST exist in that folder.
