Subject RE: Any Windows experts out there????

Dan,

I tried:

<property name="env.Path" value="${env.Path}"/>
<property name="env.PATH" value="${env.PATH}"/>

and got:

Property ${env.Path} has not been set
Setting project property: env.Path -> ${env.Path}
Property ${env.PATH} has not been set
Setting project property: env.PATH -> ${env.PATH}

Thanks,
Kevin
