      Description

      After installing Groovy using groovy-1.5.7-installer.exe, I noticed problems to start my WebLogic server...
      After investigation it turned out it was no longer possible to run 'java' from command line, it did work when using 'java.exe'
      Some further investigation showed that the environment variable PATHEXT was now PATHEXT=;.groovy;.gy in stead of the usual value PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

      Needless to say Groovy left the building in the mean time... (

          Groovy doesn't have to leave the building: just don't use the windows installer if it causes problems.
          That said, we'll investigate the issue.

          I see this has a fix version set, does this mean its fixed?

          Also, is this fix in 1.6-RC1? See also my dupe GROOVY-3289

          The 1.6-RC-1 release contains a fix for the problem with setting the path (GROOVY-3289). Please test it and report whether setting the path works without problems. If setting the path works, and setting pathext doesn't then I'll change setting the pathext to the new implementation as well.

          There seem to be no more problems. The solution seems to be the same as for the path, using a special version of NSIS.
