Python to PATH

Adding Python to the PATH environment variable in Windows XP or Windows Vista:

  1. Right-click the "My Computer" icon ("Computer" in Vista)
  2. Choose "Properties" from the context menu
  3. Click the "Advanced" tab ("Advanced system settings" link in Vista)
  4. 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...
