That doesn't have anything to do with CVS. It's just standard Windows
behaviour. If you want the environment variable to be persistently set,
you've got to do it via Control Panel>System>Advanced>Environment
Variables. Also note that even if you do it like that it will still
have to repopen all console windows that were already open in order to
make use of the new environment.

Hope this helps.

In everybody's best interest, please do not post or CC technical
questions to me in private unless they are specifically about a
macro/product of mine that is NOT already bundled with WinCvs.
