The set command does not save values between cmd.exe sessions. How can I save environmental values between new cmd.exe sessions?

For example the set command will work for my current session only:

set path=%path%;C:\Mingw\bin

Upon restarting cmd.exe my path string has been reset.

Possible solution: .bashrc or .bash_profile equivalent for DOS
