Well... not really (should have told it). We have a H:-drive which is
mounted when we log-on, but it does not contain our setting :-(. Every
time when a student logs on to a computer, where he hasn't logged on
before, a directory is created under c:\documents and settings for
that student (named with our logincode). (this is also very
frustrating when you by example install mozilla firefox on your
h:-drive because you always lose your setting :s )

This is indeed a very nice installer. When I started using GnuPG I
also had problems installing it, but I did it using WinPT tools, which
also works well. Thought for an installation at school the nullify
installer would be better indeed.

Is it possible to add this value to PATH using a commandline and only
for the current session? Doing it this way i would be able to write a
batch file which i could start before i use GnuPG. Or am I wrong?

Thank you for your very helpful answer :-)

Kind regards,
