Hm, you're right - I've only installed Erlang on one Windows XP box, and
I don't remember it asking about winsock.

Well, I wouldn't even be suggesting it if you didn't mention that this
was a fresh(ish) install of Windows.
I thought about it some more and I really can't think of why Erlang
would have any reason to do anything with the TCP/IP stack on startup
unless it's running a distribution, or maybe just some initialization
code. So, I'm beginning to think it's less likely that it's the
Although that doesn't rule out C#/.NET - if you have plenty of time, you
could try installing XP from scratch, then installing Erlang first thing
and trying it, then installing C#/.NET or whatever else, then trying
Or... grasping at straws here... maybe you could try:
- different boot scripts
- recompiling init.beam with a call to fprof at the start
(assuming that fprof can be started independent of the rest of the
system, which I don't know for sure)
- or just littering the startup code with erlang:display("here!")
statements... crude but at least an indication of roughly where the
