    The session.SetEnvironmentVar method sets a variable in NOTES.INI. Idea requires you to set an operating system environment variable. Such a variable can currently be read using the LotusScript Environ function. For example, Environ("TEMP") is commonly used. But it cannot be set. It's not a problem to set it up via the C API, maybe somehow via a Shell function. But it will always depend on the platform.
