        Console.WriteLine("********************************************************" + vbLf)
        Console.WriteLine("Creating an EnvironmentPermission with AllAccess rights for 'TMP'")
        Dim envPerm1 As New EnvironmentPermission(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.AllAccess, "TMP")
        Console.WriteLine("Adding 'TEMP' to the write access list, and 'windir' to the read access list.")
        envPerm1.AddPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Write, "TEMP")
        envPerm1.AddPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Read, "windir")
        Console.WriteLine("Read access list before SetPathList = " + envPerm1.GetPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Read))
        Console.WriteLine("Setting read access to 'TMP'")
        envPerm1.SetPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Read, "TMP")
        Console.WriteLine("Read access list after SetPathList = " + envPerm1.GetPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Read))
        Console.WriteLine("Write access list = " + envPerm1.GetPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.Write))
        Console.WriteLine("Write access environment variables = " + envPerm1.GetPathList(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.AllAccess))
    Catch e As ArgumentException
        ' EnvironmentPermissionAccess.AllAccess cannot be used as a parameter for GetPathList.
        Console.WriteLine("An ArgumentException occurred as a result of using AllAccess. " + _
        " This property cannot be used as a parameter in GetPathList, because it represents " + _
        "more than one type of environment variable : " + vbLf + e.Message)
