# RE: ACLIC in winxp

Hi Balint,

If you wrote the environment variables by the control panel (system->advanced-Env.Vars), then you don't need to execute vcvars32.bat anymore, since the System knows these varibles. Vcvars32.bat is used only as a kind of "startup script", to set these variables for the current command prompt session only. The best way is to use the control panel to set these variables definitively into the System.

Cheers,
Bertrand.

Thanx, I'll do that, but if the thing works in the other way as I wrote it
(System->Advanced->Env.Vars) then why do I have to do it in this way for

only one session? Because now it works for all sessions without running vcvars32.bat command before root.exe. So, it is strange for me.

But thanx!

Balint
