JSI Tip 0103 - On the fly path modifications.

The Windows NT 4.0 resource kit (see Catalog for pricing) contains a new command line application called PathMan which will make modifications to both the user and system Path variables. Additionally, Pathman will broadcast a message to all top-level windows informing them of the environment change. This causes the system shell (Explorer, Progman or YourOwnShell) and many other intelligent applications to update their environments.
