I just tried a shell test on WinXP and it looks like you need to do this 
for the shell command:

   put shell("set foo")

So, what I did first was this:

   put "test string" into $foo

That created the environment variable. Then to retrive it:

  put shell("set foo")

Which gives:

   foo=test string

Note that the "$" is omitted and the command is "set" instead of "echo".
