I’m occasionally using a beta program that requires me to change the search path. The procedure for doing this in Vista seems to be something that Microsoft do not wish to talk about, and I have to search the web to remind myself how to do it; so I’m going to post the procedure here and maybe I’ll remember it.
Click on the “Start” button and select “Computer”
Right click and select “properties”
Select “Advanced System Settings” from the left
It should display the “Advanced” tab; Click on the “Environment Variables” button
Find the “Path” variable on the “System Variables” list.
Click the “Edit” button
Edit the path, and click OK three times
