It happened to me a couple of times, with R10B-3 and R10B-4.
In my case the problem was a registry key that werl uses to know were
to put the main window was corrupted. Apparently, werl started
correctly but the window wasn't visible because its coordinates were
out of the desktop.

I don't know in what situation this key was corrupted but the problem
disapeared deleting it:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ericsson\Erlang\5.4.5\Pos.
The next time I run werl the key was created again with default values
and werl was visible.
