Mma has it's own path varibale $Path. The environment variables of DOS/Win unix have nothing to do with it. By the way the $varname is the reference to a shell variable in unix, the reference to an environment variable in DOS/Windows batch files is %varname%. You must set the Mma $Path variable in Your init.m file with AppendTo[$Path,"c:/pc/packages"] Hope that helps Jens
