How would someone set Splunk environment variables in Windows? Similar to the Linux command:

source /opt/splunk/bin/setSplunkEnv

...So they would get %SPLUNK_HOME%, %SPLUNK_DB%, etc?

Splunk has several command line tools. One of those is useful for this purpose. splunk envvars

Create a batch file using splunk envvars and then run that batch file:

splunk envvars > setSplunkEnv.bat
setSplunkEnv.bat

NB This is just a convenience. It is useful for setting the environment variables Splunk uses into your local shell. It is not needed for running Splunk.
