How do you make and set a environment variable?

2 1172
I am not sure what you mean by 'make' an environment variable.

One option to set env varialbes is to make entries into the registry
directly.
For user-specific env variables: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
System-wide env variables:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session
Manager\Environment

For Visual Studio .NET 2005 (Whidbey): Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable()

You might also want to use SetEnvironmentVariable() Win32 API (thru
P/Invoke)
