Error when using -sname option

Hi,

 

Bit of a beginner on using Erlang.

 

I was following a tutorial and it said to run Erlang like follows:

            erl.exe -sname ping

 

It fails miserably. I was wondering if it has got something to do with my OS
(Windows XP) or something to do with how Erlang is set up? And of course,
how do I fix it?

 

The error was:
