Here are my reproduction steps. These were done on Windows 10 with no previous version of SlickEdit installed.
  • Download se_20000004_win64_beta2.msi
  • Run se_20000004_win64_beta2.msi
  • When prompted to choose an installation path, enter c:\slickedit and enable the checkbox to add SlickEdit to the PATH

When my installation completed, c:\slickedit\bin was not in my Windows PATH. I added it manually.

You found a Microsoft Windows 10 bug. This appears to occur with any application you install on Windows 10. Guess Microsoft missed this problem.

Your PATH was updated. Go to your environment settings and check and you'll see that your PATH has been updated. However, when you start a command shell, it will not have the correct new PATH. You'll either need to reboot or edit your PATH environment variable and hit all the OK buttons as if you modified your PATH (that's what I did and the next command shell I opened had the right PATH).

After doing a clean install, I did check my environment settings like you describe and the SlickEdit directory was not there. I did this before reporting this issue.

Have you tried rebooting? Worth a shot anyway.
