Targets that have a post-compile haxelib run step fail to compile when calling haxe.cmd of a local lix installation directly (as vshaxe does for its tasks). Somehow it works through npx though:

> node_modules\.bin\haxe.cmd build.hxml
Error: Error: Library hxjava is not installed : run 'haxelib install hxjava'
Called from haxelib/client/Main.hx line 1222
Called from haxelib/client/Main.hx line 1424
Called from haxelib/client/Main.hx line 1456
Called from haxelib/client/Main.hx line 493

> npx haxe build.hxml
haxelib run hxjava hxjava_build.txt --haxe-version 4005 --feature-level 1
javac.exe "-sourcepath" "src" "-d" "obj" "-g" "@cmd"

I thought that it must be calling the wrong Haxelib in the first example, but explicitly putting it into the PATH doesn't help either:

set PATH=node_modules\.bin;%PATH%

So there must be some other difference. Could well be a Windows specific problem.

Ok, I found out how to make it work: when you set the PATH, be sure to make it absolute ;)

Hmm... I could've sworn I tried that, but this might explain some things (such as me thinking that I had a working fix in vshaxe for a while... 🤦‍♂)
