You can use the following:

  io:format("~s\n", 
[[65,110,97,108,121,115,105,115,32,109,117,115,116,32,98,101,32,100,111,110,101,32,111,110,32,98,121,116,101,32,99,111,100,101,32,105,110,32,97,110,97,108,121,115,105,115,32,109,111,100,101,32,"plt_build"]]).

Analysis must be done on byte code in analysis mode plt_build

This means that the betting.beam file does not contain abstract code.
If you want to build a PLT with it, you need to compile the file with 
+debug_info.

PS. Please try to submit a proper bug reports: minimally include info
     about OTP version and platform used.
