Update-SessionEnvironment

Update-SessionEnvironment

Update-SessionEnvironment

Updates the environment variables of the current powershell session with any environment variable changes that may have occured during a Chocolatey package install.

Syntax

Update-SessionEnvironment

Description

When Chocolatey installs a package, the package author may add or change certain environment variables that will affect how the application runs or how it is accessed. Often, these changes are not visible to the current PowerShell session. This means the user needs to open a new PowerShell session before these settings take effect which can render the installed application nonfunctional until that time.

Use the Update-SessionEnvironment command to refresh the current PowerShell session with all environment settings possibly performed by Chocolatey package installs.

Notes

This method is also added to the user's PowerShell profile as refreshenv. When called as refreshenv, the method will provide additional output.

Preserves PSModulePath as set by the process starting in 0.9.10.
