Are environment variables on Windows 2000/XP global?

When I say global I mean do different language installations (i.e French, Spanish etc) use the same (English) variables?

If I had a Spanish version, I'd take a look. :)

I believe they do, but I'm not absolutely sure...

I suppose you could check in each language by opening a command window (Start -> Run and type in cmd) and then type in set to see all the variables - presuming, of course, that set works in different languages :confused:

That only works if you have all different languages of Windows installed somewhere! I have all the languages available on my MSDN subscription, but I sure don't want to install a bunch of them for this test. :D

Well I was wondering because I could be posting useless info on another international forum where I offer support :)

For the time being I will assume they are the same, but I would like a definite answer (y)
