Hi Wesley,
First of thank you for the info but maybe I was not 100% clear:
to change the environment variable for the "logged-on user" I know this can
be also done in the registry: HKEYCU/Environments.

But wher ca nwe set this for the default user, to have this variable
automaticly configured when a users log on for the very first time on a pc?

We need this for software distribution, so that we then can use a GPO that
let the system and not the client point the nearest serverto pull down non MS
software updates.

Thanks,
Koen
