    The installation of devkitPRO automatically changed my Windows path to the following: PATH=c:devkitPromsysbin;C:windowssystem32;etc

    Problem is that c:devkitPromsysbin contains replacements for all of the standard DOS shell commands in C:windowssystem32 and now in my Windows Command prompt and all of my BAT files these commands are used instead and cause my BATS to fail. For Example the FIND command works differently in msys and so my BATS that use FIND to filter data now fail.

    I have fixed this by removing these additions from the default path using “Control Panel/System/Advanced System Settings/Environment Variable/System Variables/Delete” and changing the devkitPromsys shortcut to invoke an MSys.bat which temporarily alters the path before calling devkitPromsys.

    Is there a better way of handling this?

    Simply:
    Use a Virtual PC (Xp can run with 256Mb of ram assigned)
