You're mighty welcome.

When steeldriver challenged me to explain my reasoning behind the changes I was suggesting, I thought to myself: Uh oh...now, for the sake of being honest, I'm going to have to risk looking like an idiot, admit that I really don't know what the hell I'm doing, and am just taking a "shot in the dark" that might hit the target yet wouldn't harm anything if it missed.
Fortunately, we got lucky and the shot hit the bulls eye. But, still, when it comes to giving a rational, logical, or technically sound explanation for it, I'm clueless. My reasoning was based purely on emotion--I just had a weird "gut" feeling that it might work. Sometimes, when all else fails, it helps to go with "gut" feelings, and at other times, doing so can make a huge mess of things. Knowing that adding another path to PATH wouldn't wreak havoc, I figured we had nothing to lose by taking the shot.
Hopefully, steeldriver, or one of the Wizards on this forum, will pop in here and enlighten us with a little bit of desperately needed education as to why this worked.
So, it's nice to know that things are working for you now. I shared your frustration with this problem more than you know. It was driving me nuts. Often, when I become as frustrated as I had, my patience suffers. I apologize, if during the course of this thread, I came across as being somewhat of an impatient ass. My frustration wasn't with you, but rather with the confusing nature of the problem. And now, the frustration still lingers because we never discovered the underlying cause of the problem, or why the solution worked--maybe we never will.
All the best wishes to you, Langstracht.
Thank you for marking your thread as: [SOLVED].
