I am installing  RAD Studio 10.3 on a PC running Windows 10 Professional  and have received a warning before installation commences : "It has been detected that your system PATH environment variable is too long"
The link to further information states:
"The installation of RAD Studio adds up to 218 characters to your PATH environment variable. If the length of your PATH environment variable goes beyond 2048 characters, your system will misbehave".

The length of the "PATH" environment is 1936 characters.
I was under the impression that Windows 10 has a system PATH environment maximum length of 4096 characters.

Is this correct and in which case should I proceed with installation ?
