Under DOS it was possible to set the size of the environment by using SET COMMAND=<path>\COMMAND.COM /E:4096 but under Windoze 95 this does not work.  I need to increase the size of the environment provided for a DOS Shell to allow me to set some environment variables for some compiler settings.  How do I increase the environment size???

You need to change Master Environment by changes in CONFIG.SYS:
SHELL=<path>\COMMAND.COM /E:4096 /P

Another solution is to use some non-standard command processor,
like NDOS. NDOS take its settings from separate file NDOS.INI.
