Bug Description

Vadile windows installer has erased my computer's path variable and made my computer useless for more than two days.

I was interested in vala and I decided to give it a look because I'm looking for a scripting engine or some thing to integrate in our product. I installed valide and bam! compiler stopped working, ping stopped working, all my compiler and library paths gone, everything right now is messed up thanks to a simple bug in your installer. Installer over ride system path variable (erased content) and put valides paths. Cool huh !

This is my workstation at work and thanks to your installer it is broken because of a programming languages non working idea. (yeah valide is not working giving stupid errors all the time)
