In win7 to add nginx to the system variables caused the tragedy

Start nginx, If you do not specify a configuration file, Then nginx will automatically to your current directory to the config/nginx.conf configuration file, You configure the system variable nginx, So you can use the nginx command in any place, When you are in the directory without config/nginx.conf, It can't find a configuration file, So we can't start. Nginx installation path down there, so you enter the installation path to start. Of course if you explicitly specify, it does not matter.
