I am trying to set my environment variable using cmake but the result from this string

PATH=%PATH%;C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2015/bin/

 

results in

PATH=%PATH%

C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2015/bin/

 

CMake thinks the string is a list because of the semicolon. Another CMake wtf moment. Any idea how to prevent this and force the string be a string and not a list?

Have you tried escaping the command?

Put a "\" before the semicolon, this will escape the command the semicolon does which is try and split the object into 2 objects. Not sure if this will work for cmake but it should.
