Resolve installers failing to add the path to the environment variable - MapXtreme .NET 7.3


During installation of MapXtreme .NET the installer is failing to add the C:\Program Files (x86)\Common 
Files\MapInfo\MapXtreme\7.x.x\RasterGridHandlers path to the environment variable. The following information can be found within the MapXtreme .NET Release Notes: 

Raster/Grid Handlers and Oracle: MapXtreme may be unable to load some raster and grid handlers when the Oracle client is installed. This can occur when running a 32-bit MapXtreme application, such as Workspace Manager on either a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. To work around this issue, add C:\Program Files (x86)\Common 
Files\MapInfo\MapXtreme\7.x.x\RasterGridHandlers to the beginning of your system PATH variable. 

This has to be implemented each time a new version is deployed, which is a very tedious and time consuming process.



This is a Feature of MapXtreme .NET
