Goal

If multiple environments, (PS_Homes), are on the same machine, how does the Process Scheduler picks up the value for PS_HOME?

For example
There are two environments on the same machine, "Production" and "Conversion".  The PS_HOME system variable is defined for the "Conversion" environment.  In the Psprcs.cfg file, only the PS_HOME variable is used, so it read the value of "Conversion".

However, all reports and processes are running successfully in the "Production" environment.  This indicates that somehow PS_HOME for Production environment is in the consideration.  

Therefore, if the PS_HOME variable is defined for the "Conversion" environment then why is the value of PS_HOME is pointing to the "Production" environment?
