## VS2005 debugger environment (setting path environment for an executable)

### VS2005 debugger environment (setting path environment for an executable)

Its been a while since I used the VS suite. I am debugging an executable
that has several dependdencies on DLLS built in different directories.

I need to setup Debugging for my project so that I can include the DLLS
in the search path for the exe - I have looked under
Project->Properties->Configuration Properties->Debugging

For Local Windows Debuging Selection:

The most obvious attribute/property is 'Environment'

I tried the following strings (sperately of course), none of which worked:

PATH=PATH;c:\path1;c:\path2;c:\path3
%PATH%=%PATH%;c:\path1;c:\path2;c:\path3
\$(PATH)=\$(PATH);c:\path1;c:\path2;c:\path3

Anyone know how I can set the path so that I dont have to copy all the
DLL dependencies into the working directory?

PATH=\$(PATH);c:\path1;c:\path2;c:\path3

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly

You're not alone who is confused about that.
