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.
