Yes, it does pass all environment variables. But I don't want to use those TMP or _CONDOR_* names - I want to set a specific environment variable that is already used by my application (and has a name that makes sense).

No, that's not the case - as I wrote in my first post.

I'll investigate that option. Still a little awkward - would be nicer if Condor would have the possibility of setting environment variables on the execution side..

Thanks again Brian!
