I am debugging a program that reads an environment variable. So far, I could not find how to launch it in Immunity/Olly with a custom environment.

Anybody know how this can be done?

As an alternative to blabb's answer, if you'd like to set the environment variable via a GUI, you can use http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/32131/Dynamically-Add-Edit-Environment-Variables-of-Remo
