I get the same error message on Windows, but the problem might not be OS
specific (although I guess it is).

In my case, I don't have any snmpa.app file that the runtime can find. This
makes it return an error from application_controller:

    case code:where_is_file(FName) of
 non_existing ->
     {error, {file:format_error({error,enoent}), FName}};

For some strange reason,
    file:format_error({error,enoent})
evaluates to
    "unknown POSIX error".

I don't really know how you should proceed, but at least you know where to start
:-)

regards,
Vlad
