Setting the PATH variable

Hi!
I have problems setting the PATH environment variable in autoexec.bat
It includes the following code:

(...)
set JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.2
set CLASSPATH=.;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\classes.zip;%JAVA_HOME%\ibmjs\lib\ibmjs.jar
set PATH=%PATH%;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\ibmjs\lib
(...)

Setting PATH like this results in an error message NOT ENOUGH ENVIRONMENT SPACE (or something like this - the original message is in German).

Does anybody know the reason for this?

Thanks,

Torsten

You can set the environment size in Config.sys by using the /E switch after the shell command for Command.com

SHELL=COMMAND.COM /E:1024 /P

The /E:1024 assigns 1kb to the environment size which is the default. Change it to /E:2048 to double it to 2Kb which should be plenty. Make sure that you use the /P switch at the end otherwise the machine could lock up under certain circumstances.

Type the command as shown above but changing the size in 1KB chunks as necessary.
