When I installed clisp-2.49-win32-mingw-big.exe on Windows 7 I had a very annoing consequence: all content of system variable "PATH" was lost when it replaced by "Path". As a result I have only "...\clisp-2.49" in "Path", variable "PATH" doesn't exist.

It will be easily escaped if installer add "%;Path%" to existing system variable "PATH".

    It is strange situation, but in other computer install was normal, maybe I made a mistake.
