I installed KiCad Version 5.1.4. on a new notebook.I wanted to iclude my old libarie for a project I started on my old notebook. I thought I simply can go to Preferences -> Configure Paths and change the Path of the environment variable name. But everytime there is an error messeage: this path was defined externally to the running process and will only be temporarily overwritten
Unfortunately it’s typical for Windows to have differences between versions when you need to do something with the system, and not only between major version, but even between updates, too. Therefore it’s impossible to say for sure what works best for you. I found out that on my Win10 installation Control Panel (View by Category) -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables… lets me to edit both User variables and System variables (assuming my account has admin priviledges).
I can open the same dialog from Start menu search box by typing “environment variables”, but it has System variables editing disabled.
Yes, I can. I wanted to make a screenshot concerning the environmet variables and post it on KiCad forum as I did several times in the past. But there is always an Error Acess Denied when I paste the picture.
