Win Path to FPC
« on: June 16, 2021, 10:51:02 am »
I recently had occasion to build trunk Lazarus on a Windows box.  This wiki page https://wiki.freepascal.org/Installing_Lazarus_on_Windows tells me to do this (eg) -

Code: [Select]
set path=c:\freepascal\bin\x86_64-win64
make bigide

However, I found that did not change the path to the desired value.  I found doing this worked -

Code: [Select]
$env:PATH="c:\freepascal\bin\x86_64-win64"
make bigide

Now, I was using Powershell on Win10 and I am particularly (and deliberately) ignorant of windows. So I am reluctant to edit the wiki page unless you Windows people confirm my experience.

So, confirm away please .....

Most wiki will be for cmd.exe, which was the default Windows NT shell for 25 years.

Yep, and maybe a batch file still uses cmd.exe even under Powershell ?

I just noticed, while fixing some other things that the instructions that mislead me do mention making a batch file. Seems an unnecessary complication to me ...
