This looks like a simple MSDos error. The space between Program and Files is
not parsed correctly. I have no Windows 2000 to experience with, but
brobably you can
put erlc in a different path and see if the problem remains.

> 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

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