NEKOPATH env var not set after fresh install on Windows 10 ("missing neko.dll") #9021
I just installed Haxe 4.0.3 for the first time ever, using the Win64 installer from the official site (https://haxe.org/download/file/4.0.3/haxe-4.0.3-win64.exe/), I did not use the suggested install path (C:\HaxeToolkit) but instead C:\Work\Haxe\HaxeToolkit.
Opened a terminal, ran haxe: not found, haxelib: not found. I navigated to the install path, saw the haxe subfolder, ran haxe from there: ok, ran haxelib: got a "missing neko.dll" error.
Rebooted my PC, opened a terminal, ran haxe: ok, it's found now (the HAXEPATH env var must need a restart to properly propagate... meh), but when I ran haxelib I still got a "missing neko.dll" error.
So I manually set NEKOPATH = C:\Work\Haxe\HaxeToolkit\neko, then added %NEKOPATH% to PATH, rebooted again... finally, haxelib runs!
Not a big deal, but not a great first-time experience either :/ ...
