I tried the distaller (http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dinstaller.exe) some days ago
and found out that, after the installation, all my former entries in the %PATH%
variable where gone. Only the new paths to the two directories within C:\D\...
where configured.

Someone should change the dinstaller so that the DMD path entries will be
appended to the existing ones instead of overwriting them.

Thanks & regards
notna

This might help:

(since the installer is written in NSIS...)

But I'm still not sure what the fix could be... maybe checking for the value
before and after changing it, as it suggests...
