Add "%ProgramFiles%\IronPython 2.0.1 " to %PATH%, not "%ProgramFiles%\Iron Python 2.0.1".

Also, change '"c:\program files\syncfusion\essential studio\\assemblies\3.5"' to 'r"c:\program files\syncfusion\essential studio\\assemblies\3.5"'.

Subject: [IronPython] ipy.exe not found -- sorry, haven't programmed on windows since 90s

I apologize for the next several questions.  I'm want to play with a .net library but don't want to doit in C# or VB.  I prefer dynamic languages.

Anyway, I have a few questions I'm struggling to find complete examples for.

First, in my test directory inside either cmd or powershell, ipy.exe isn't found when I enter it on the command line.  I tried changing the PATH environment variable:

    setenv PATH=%PATH%;c:\Program Files\Iron Python 2.0.1\

and it shows in my environment, but still when I enter "ipy" at the command line it isn't found.  What am I missing?

Second, I need to add the directory with the DLLs of the library I want to play with.  I think I need:

    import clr
    import sys
    sys.path = sys.path + ["c:\program files\syncfusion\essential

Does that make sense?

If that's right, then I'm wondering how I can test to see if anything loaded, since PdfDocument() can't be found.
