Sorry, but it is of my opinion, that document is ignorant.

To permanently set a temporary environment variable is foolish and bad practice.

Just my opinion ...
Temporary is a permanent problem!

Please expound, I never thought of it as temporary. If it's fairly easy for you to explain, I am listening. DOS explanations are cool too :thumbup:
Not trying to mess up a pcm hammer thread but this could be very useful for many.

I'm not sure I can explain it any better ...

The very first thing it tells you to do is edit your "System Variables" ... That is a permanent system change, forever, until you purposelessly delete it.

That environment variable is needed only for that single run of device manager, thus a Temporary System Variable (Environment Variable), as soon as you close the command window it's gone.
