   afaik, erlgtk is no longer maintained.
   gtknode is maintained, and should be reasonably easy to compile under windows 
  (using cygwin/mingw). afaik no one has actually done it though.
   last i looked at wxerlang it was worked on, but perhaps not quite ready for 
prime time. gets big plus for using native widgets.
   there is of course gs, included in OTP. i find it ugly, buggy and a pain to 
work with, but that's just me. it should work out of the box.
