    After "UNSET *", "BDEBUGGER batfile" results in

    ---------------------------
    IDE.EXE - Application Error
    ---------------------------
    The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004). Click on OK to terminate the application.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    What's up with that?

    IDE doesn't care. Windows is exploding when IDE.EXE tries to load a COM dll
    (islicense40.dll) when %SystemRoot% isn't present.

    Bad things in general will happen in Windows if %SystemRoot% isn't present
    (for example, rundll32 gets upset & fails to locate most everything).

    Yes! A lot of MS apps don't like it either.
