Windows 10: System Path variable length problem
System Path variable length problem
I was having a problem with Apple's SyncServer.exe (part of iTunes). It was choking on the length of my system PATH environment variable (2388 bytes), so I temporarily hacked it below 2047 bytes, and it worked OK.
BUT I couldn't use Control panel/System/Advanced Systems Settings to restore it to what it was previously as that complained that the variable was too long.
To quote MSDN:
Luckily I was able to restore my PATH by using regedit to change the variable Path stored at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment which doesn't appear to suffer from the problem of the control panel.
The maximum size of a user-defined environment variable is 32,767 characters. (omitted) Starting with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, there is no technical limitation on the size of the environment block.
Is there any chance this will be fixed (ho ho).
