Environment variables

elhessar asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-04
Recently I've learned that it`s possible to set environment variables (that can be "seen" for example by a Win32 app) permanently using the Resource Kit utility called setx.exe. But it seems that it´s not possible erase them by means of the same utility, instead you have to go to the Control Panel-System and delete it.  Does anyone know if there is any "hidden" switch of setx.exe to do this? Any other ResKit utility? Or you have to edit the Registry and delete them manually?
