summary: Add path to PuTTY programs to PATH in Windows installer
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.
fixed-in: 0.67 5c5879b99d2a0785095a384f48a2d934e1b2d4c5

We occasionally get asked to add an option in the Windows installer package to add the command-line programs such as PSCP and Plink to the system PATH.

One suggested solution is to use add_path.

Update, 2016-03: the MSI-format installer available starting with 0.67 has an option for this.

(The git commit id listed in Fixed-in is actually after 0.67, even though 0.67 has an MSI installer. That's not an error; I prepared the 0.67 MSI ad-hoc, after 0.67 itself was released.)
