Missing a persistent SCITE_USERHOME environment variable ?

This blog post is a work in progress... I haven't yet fully understood what is wrong with my SciTE install. Although the missing SCITE_USERHOME environment variable is a good lead...

Utilities look for an env variable called SCITE_USERHOME and when that is missing will assume a portable installation of SciTE:


cmd /c "setx SCITE_USERHOME ^"%UserProfile%^" & pause"


cmd /c "REG ADD HKCU\Environment /v SCITE_USERHOME /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d ^%UserProfile^% & pause"
