Thanks for that. I hope you can resolve it. I don't think I know enough at the moment but I'm learning.

Hi Bob, Erlyweb does indeed have a bug on Windows where it doesn't  
seem to be registering components properly (I ran into this last week  
myself), thus making it unusable. There's a slight discussion about  
it on the Erlyweb Google Group - I plan to hunt down the bug when I'm  
back at work tomorrow, as I don't have access to a Windows machine at  
home.
