[erlang-questions] : : [SOLVED] Can't set long node name on windows

I am using XP SP2. "-name" works for me.
C:\>c:\opt\erl5.6\bin\erl.exe -name  
Eshell V5.6  (abort with ^G)
Can you try "tracert" to the IP address you use? Can you see anything unusual from the output?
Cheers, Anthony

This still doesn't work for me.  I'm running Windows XP with Erlang 5.6; when I do:

erl -name  

I get a popup box saying "erl.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."  There are no other error messages.  Has anyone else encountered this bug?  Can anyone suggest how to workaround or diagnose the problem?  Thanks.
