    After updating system environment variables, restarting a Windows shell or Console itself won't update the loaded environment variables until restarting Windows. Most other Windows software does.

    Can anyone fix this?

    How do you update the variables? What do you mean exactly by "restarting a Windows shell"? What do you mean by "loaded environment variables"? And finally, could you please provide a scenario that will show that Console does not update them?

    Could it be that you forgot to "apply" your changes? When I change the environment variables (using the control panel) and then start a new console process (or open a new tab in an existing one), the changes in the environments can be seen.
