Issue/Introduction

When a program that makes changes to the Windows environmental variable (such as PATH) is captured into a layer, the changes are not available when the layer is activated.

Cause

Windows loads these variables at start up before the layer is activated; therefore, the value for these variables will be whatever is in the base.

Resolution

Workaround: Modify the value of the environmental variable in the base. See also article 27466.
