(Solved) – Load windows environment variables


I have a sub that updated the windows environment variables based on user input. Can be done with either shell or WScript.

Shell "setx command"


Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objEnv = objShell.Environment("USER")
objEnv("test") = new_env_var

Then I have other subs that would need to use the new environment variables. I would need to restart Excel in order to use these variables. Is it possible to load these variables without restarting Excel?
