You have probably installed Erlang with the plain start script
as default instead of the start_sasl script. The plain start script
only starts the kernel and stdlib applications, and release_handler
is part of the sasl application.

Starting erlang as
 > erl -boot start_sasl
should work. You can also re-install Erlang and select the start_sasl
boot script as default.
