setenv command for CPDIR Solaris 8?

This is a sanity check. I am attempting to setenv CPDIR to be the directory for FW-1 NG FP1. I have added the entry to the init script, also tried adding it in /etc/default/login and also setting it using /usr/oasys/setenv - but when attempting to run an app depending on it it always claims I haven't set it.

Could someone please tell me how they would do it - it is driving me mad!

are all these scripts csh scripts?
Most likely they are sh scripts, sh (and friends) does not have a setenv command, but somthing like:

  export CPDIR

(instead of:  setenv CPDIR /path/to/dir )
