As we all know that Environment variables play a vital role in many applications, the way they are handled in a virtual app is radically different from that of a physically installed application.
Below mentioned points discriminates behavior of virtually defined environment variables from that of physical ones.
• The Environment Variable defined exists ONLY when the application is active. The variables are cleared once the application is closed.
• The environment variable inside the virtual app will override the values defined by the Operating system.
• All the variables are treated as User variable even if gets captured as a variable defined at system level.
This is how an environment variable is defined inside OSD
Multiple environment variables can be defined within the tag using the above syntax. Needless to say that above XML content will return a parser error because of "[". Removing this would get the us the job done
