Thank you for reporting this.
This is not the first time this has been reported - I think it must affect some particular version(s) of Windows. (I just re-tested it on a Windows Vista laptop and it appended to the path).

Fortunately, the upcoming release does not touch the path at all, and has many nice new features(*). So please test

http://www.denemo.org/~jjbenham/mxe/denemo.zip

which does not need the path setting at all (it does not need to be installed, just run it from the unzipped directory).

This is the conversation I just input into the Denemo IRC chat:

[12:10] == DenemoGuest5 [a758d54a@gateway/web/freenode/ip.167.88.213.74] has joined #denemo
[12:10] <DenemoGuest5> hello
[12:10] <DenemoGuest5> is anyone on?
[12:11] <DenemoGuest5> I wanted to report a bug in Denemo for windows (downloaded with the "windows" version button at the top of the download page - http://denemo.org/downloads/denemo-2.2.0-0.mingw.exe
[12:12] <DenemoGuest5> after installing this Denemo version, Denemo wrote it's own directory to my Windows Environment Variables PATH causing command prompt commands to return "XXXXX is not recognized as a internal or external command"
[12:13] <DenemoGuest5> I had to navigate to the Environment Variables in the Advanced section of My Computer properties and Edit it to point to C:\windows\system32\ so that command prompt commands would be recognized again
[12:13] <DenemoGuest5> otherwise, I have just started using Denemo and I like it - I have found it easier to notate than other programs such as Musescore and such
[12:14] <DenemoGuest5> Thank you, I will also send an email if I can locate the contact info

Thank you, cool program
