    Reading Environment variables problem

    vinayan3 Novice

       

      Hi,

       

       

      I am using ReadVariable with the option VIX_GUEST_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE and I am getting blank values. I am logged in as the Administrator.

       

       

      Note, the two environment variables I can retrieve with no problem are TEMP, and TEMP.

       

       

      However, I can't retrieve variables like WINDIR, PATH, COMSPEC, and even SYSTEMDIR. I have tried to put the environment variables into section for this user in the advanced pane of my computer. Through the VIX inteface I only get blank values. I can retrieve them all on the command line within the VM with no problems

       

       

      Is there a limitation of VIX?

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks,
