From http://www.rabbitmq.com/configure.html:

«Create or edit the system variable name and value. For environment changes to take effect on Windows, the service must be re-installed. It is not sufficient to restart the service.»

As a side note, the official RabbitMQ mailing list is rabbitmq-users. rabbitmq-discuss
is an unofficial mirror to the legacy list.

Please use groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/rabbitmq-users as rabbitmq-discuss will be
completely discontinued on Oct 1st.
