On the same Windows machine, I have dev tools for Symbian (that comes with its version of gcc), and I have MinGW (that comes with its version of gcc), and of course they both want to be first in the path.
So I have to manually edit the path every time I want to work on a project that's on the other platform. Obviously a PITA.
Do you experts out there know of a better way of dealing with this?
You can cook it right into a desktop icon by setting the Shortcut/Target to run a batch command before starting up the application.
i.e. in a Command Prompt "cmd.exe /K setpaths.bat"
or something like "gvim --cmd setpaths.bat"

i do something similar to the posts above. i use rapidee to keep my environment variables clean. then i create a .bat for each programming environment and set various paths until all of them work.
i noticed that some need windows\system32, which i believe is a bad thing.
