The difference I see is that inside bjam PATH seems to be empty (in my
control pannel specified to be 'C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin') and that
that Path contains this extra 'C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin'. So
apparantly somewhere the content of 'PATH' gets moved to 'Path'.
Do you refer to this same difference?

Echoing %PATH%, %Path% and %path% all result in the same output which is
also a concatenation of the 'PATH' and 'Path' I set in my control pannel.

I don't know what you changed exactly but it works !!!! Brilliant.
