"Environment variables are specially named string aliases for basic system properties. They contain information such as drive, path, or file name. They control the behavior of various programs. For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies the location in which programs place temporary files." (source)

License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Previous question hasn't been addressed, so I'm foregoing RapidEE for now. I would really like to know if it addresses issues like the one reported here: http://sites.google.com/site/redmondlab/path

While trying this, I updated my PATH variable and found out it substituted some strings for expandable environment variables. Problem is, this variables aren't getting expanded by the system's console, for example, which is most inconvenient. Picture if you can what's like to work without path support for c:\windows or c:\windows\system32...

This really eases the pain and inconvenience of the built-in environment editor.

- changed: removed /cd & /usb parameter (as well as corresponding batch files).
To enable "portable mode" just create empty rapidee.ini file"

at first glance, i thought this was similar to Resource Editor, but it's not.

But i can confirm this is stealth, i used the usb.bat launcher.

V4.0 build 707

by default it checks for updates on startup, this can be remedied before running by creating RapidEE.ini file in app folder with contents
