Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
Do not modify the openedge_setenv.bat or files.  

When service packs or hotfixes are installed these files may be overwritten without any backup being taken as we do not expect customers to ever modify these files.  

Instead of modifying these files, put your custom environment variables in a file named <anything_here>_setenv.bat (on Windows) and <anything_here> (on UNIX/Linux).  

We automatically look for and execute anything that follows the <anything_here>_setenv.[bat | sh] naming convention and these custom files will not be touched by service packs or hotfixes.
