Absolute path when using erlc on windows errors out.

Everyone,

 I have what I hope is a quick question for you all.
It seems that when I use a full path to execute the
erlc command on windows 2000 it errors out. It works
just fine in other cases however. For example if I use

"C:\Program Files\erl5.2\bin\erlc.exe"
some_erlang_file.erl

I will get an "erc: Error executing 'C:\Program':22"

Once again it works fine if I leave the path off of
the erlc command.

Does anyone have a clue as to why this might be?

Thanks,
Eric
