Setting environment variables in bamboo

My build requires an environemnt variable to be set. The environment variable needs to contain the current root source directly (i.e. SRC_ROOT = "c:\trunk")

I would like to set the environment variable in my Visual Studio task in the Enviroment Variables field, but would like to set it using the global bamboo variable build.working.directory rather than a full path. However, if I set SRC_ROOT=build.working.directory\trunk it does not work. It only works if I set the actual full path name. Is there a way to make this work?

Use ${bamboo.build.working.directory} instead.

When I add a subdir it does not work: SRC_ROOT="${build.working.directory}\trunk"

Is this possible?

try to add bamboo. prefix - all built-in variables start with bamboo.

SRC_ROOT="${bamboo.build.working.directory}\trunk"
