This is the expected behavior. This is the only way the user can override the system environment variables while debugging his application.
If given values would have being appended automatically then there was no way he could have done it.
In case you need to append the values, just copy the original PATH values and append the extra values in the end.
Overwriting system environment variable (%PATH%) on providing a variable name PATH in CodeXL project settings is expected behavior.
This is generic behavior in any environment.
Thank you for the reply, I really feel AMD is making wonderful efforts to work with developers!
That makes perfect sense, Kalyan. Especially if the user intended on completely overriding a environment variable.
In response to Gilad - Great idea but unfortunately we are unable to append to the current PATH environment due to the 'truncation at the semi colon' bug.
Fortunately, there are plenty of workarounds for this so this isn't a show stopper. If you're curious; the use case scenario is I'm debugging into a legacy application where it inherits environment variables (including PATH) from parent processes.
Thank you fro the response(s),
