Problem with getenv

I have a small program that uses getenv to grab an environment variable.
Based on this variable I construct a path to a program. I them use this
path in a call to 'system' like this:

i = system(path);

The problem is that the path (returned from 'getenv') looks something like:


The error I get from the system command is:

'c:rootsubdiretc: no such device or address

It's obvious that the system command is not parsing the path correctly. Is
there any way to solve this problem.
