    I just saw this msg on the aria2 forum:

    If you have a PATH of greater than 1024 characters, installing AppUpdater will
    wipe out your PATH. This is a known NSIS issue. See
    http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=7442&group_id=167&atid=715

      This is because the default max variable length for NSIS is 1024.

      The next release of Appupdater (0.6) will have an option in the installer on whether or not to modify the system PATH variable.  If your PATH is greater than 1024 characters you can uncheck this option and manually add the path to Appupdater if needed.
