According to the source, the SetEnvironmentVariable method broadcasts the WM_SETTINGCHANGE message for you:
// send a WM_SETTINGCHANGE message to all windows
IntPtr r = Win32Native.SendMessageTimeout(new IntPtr(Win32Native.HWND_BROADCAST), Win32Native.WM_SETTINGCHANGE, IntPtr.Zero, "Environment", 0, 1000, IntPtr.Zero);
if (r == IntPtr.Zero) BCLDebug.Assert(false, "SetEnvironmentVariable failed: " + Marshal.GetLastWin32Error());

If target is EnvironmentVariableTarget.User, the environment variable is stored in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment key of the local computer's registry. It is also copied to instances of File Explorer that are running as the current user. The environment variable is then inherited by any new processes that the user launches from File Explorer.
...
If target is User or Machine, other applications are notified of the set operation by a Windows WM_SETTINGCHANGE message.

I suspect the problem is that you're calling this from a login script. This Technet post[^] seems to suggest that the message has to be broadcast after the login script has finished.
