I have scripted AddPath.vbs to add a folder to the system path.

The syntax for using AddPath.vbs is:

cscript //nologo <Drive:>\ScriptPath\AddPath.vbs Folder

Where Folder is the folder path you wish to add, like C:\Util or "C:\Program Files\Log Parser 2.2".

AddPath.vbs contains:

Dim oArgs
Set oArgs = WScript.Arguments
if oArgs.Count  1 Then Wscript.Echo "Syntax: cscript //nologo AddPath.vbs Folder"
if oArgs.Count  1 Then Wscript.Quit
NewFold = oArgs(0)
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_Environment Where Name = 'Path'")
For Each objItem in colItems
    strPath = objItem.VariableValue & ";" & NewFold
    objItem.VariableValue = strPath
    objItem.Put_
Next
