Python to PATH
Adding Python to the PATH environment variable in Windows XP or Windows Vista:
- Right-click the "My Computer" icon ("Computer" in Vista)
- Choose "Properties" from the context menu
- Click the "Advanced" tab ("Advanced system settings" link in Vista)
- Click the "Environment Variables" button
Double-click on the variable named "Path" under "System Variables"
A new window opens, showing you the "Variable name" and the "Variable value"
Now you'll have to add the following to the beginning of the line under "Variable value": "C:\Python26\;" (note the semi-colon at the end that is used as a delimiter), you could also add it to the end of the "Variable value", but then you'd have to start off with a semi-colon (";C:\Python26\"), unless it's already there...
