Cool... at least I know that I'm not loosing my mind. q:]
I'll try other routes for now. Is there any way to use the Win32 API
"SetEnvironmentVariable" function as well? I want to update some system

BTW, it doesn't cause any errors, just returns None.
P.S.: the rest of the win32 package is pretty slick... thanks! q:]
