Re: [Condor-users] Condor 7.6 - Parallel Universe on Windows - PATH messed up with wrong "slash"

In my job I tried to execute the "icacls" tool which can be used to edit
the access control lists of files/directories on the command line. The
tool is found in c:\windows\system32. When I replace the PATH in my

set PATH=C:\condor\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;...

everything works as expected. So I guessed that the "/" is for some
reason a problem here. At least the PATH is causing the issue as the
thing runs correctly as soon as I overwrite it with the PATH above.  

BTW: This is a Windows Server 2003 R2 machine.
