Where can I set path to make.exe on Windows?


When I try run make from cmd-console on Windows, it runs Turbo Delphi's make.exe but I need MSYS's make.exe. There is no mention about Turbo Delphi in %path% variable, maybe I can change it to MSYS in registry? Please, help.

Accepted Answer

The path is in the registry but usually you edit through this interface:

  1. Go to Control Panel -> System -> System settings -> Environment Variables.
  2. Scroll down in system variables until you find PATH.
  3. Click edit and change accordingly.
  4. BE SURE to include a semicolon at the end of the previous as that is the delimiter, i.e. c:\path;c:\path2
  5. Launch a new console for the settings to take effect.

here I'm providing solution to setup terraform enviroment variable in windows to beginners.

  1. Download the terraform package from portal either 32/64 bit version.
  2. make a folder in C drive in program files if its 32 bit package you have to create folder inside on programs(x86) folder or else inside programs(64 bit) folder.
  3. Extract a downloaded file in this location or copy terraform.exe file into this folder. copy this path location like C:\Programfile\terraform\
  4. Then got to Control Panel -> System -> System settings -> Environment Variables

Open system variables, select the path > edit > new > place the terraform.exe file location like > C:\Programfile\terraform\

and Save it.

  1. Open new terminal and now check the terraform.
