It is not strange though.

By invoking (System->Advanced->Env.Vars) menu chain you changed the Window "registry" entries those are used to set env. variables for all desktop applications afterwards.

Calling the batch file changes things for one session only. So one can be easily confused by starting the file for one session and expecting the variables to be set elsewhere.

Usually this is what the "Windows installer" takes care of (see for example the Qt/Root installer for Windows from http://root.bnl.gov ).
That installation (Install Shield script) does edit the MS Windows registry to point to the place where user decided to install ROOT in automatically.

Upon uninstallation it does remove it from the registry

Just my 2 cents

Best regards, Valeri
