Here is the user's question again:

"I'm trying to use environment variables within environment variables. as
in foo = c:\foo and bar = %foo%\bar and such. I can't seem to get the
environemnt (this is the current users env BTW, not the system variables)
to recursively expand these. Can that only be done w/ the system environment?"

Thanks.
