In a system there are two types of env variables..
1) User variables
2) System variables.

> All user variables are defined under below registry...
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment
> All System variables are defined under below registry...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

Then use RegistryValues, RegistryGet to get the values of those entries..

You can also use RegistrySet to set new environment variable in registry.

See PB help for more information these functions or let me know if you need more information.

Regards,
Sandeep
