One of the main barriers to getting a working development environment for me was having to discover that I needed, learn about and find out how to set up the Path variable in Windows.

I propose an option in the installer (perhaps even set to be on by default) to allow the user to choose if they want it to be added to the list or not.

My apologies if this has been raised before (my searches in the tracker didn't turn up any similar problems), I am quite new to the issue tracker however.
