Windows clients normally use the registry to store their perforce

We just set up a proxy server for one of our teams.

We sent out an email instructing people to run the following command to
update P4PORT to point to the proxy server: 

p4 set P4PORT=proxy1:1667

On other machines, however, we get the following error message:

Perforce client warning:
        Warning: environment variable hides registry definition of

Has anyone experienced this and/or know a cause or solution to it?
