    Sorry, can you elaborate a bit, I can't make out the intention from your post.

    Are you trying to set the userprofile environment variable to point somewhere, or are you trying to make a new environment variable?

    Are you in an AD network?

    Those custom variables are held in the registry [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment]

    You could write a VB script which will add them at logon, or use REGEDIT in silent mode to import a .REG file with the necessary additions in.

    As maniac said, you could script this quite easily in a login script something along the lines of:

    Code:
    SET CLASSTMP=W:\TEMP

    Didn't know about that command, even easier than the method I was suggesting!

    It's quite handy for quick stuff like that.

    If you use set without any arguments/parameters it'll helpfully show you all of the current environment variables.

    You can use the
    Code:
    setx
    command to permanently change environment variables
