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".
