In addition to <arg> elements, the <executefile> element also accepts <env> elements to set variables in the environment of the target process. This can be useful if this process requires some environment variables, such as its installation directory, to work properly. An <env> element has the following syntax: <env>variable=value</env>. Note the element supports variable substitution, for example: <env>MY_PRODUCT_HOME=$INSTALL_PATH</env>.
