My first guess would be missing Visual C++ run-time dll's. I'm pretty
sure Erlang is dynamically linked to these files (because the Erlang
setup automatically runs the VC++ redistributable installer) and if
these files are missing, I know from experience that exactly this
error message is generated. If you can't install the VC++
redistributable installer on the target machine, the solution would be
to manually copy the needed dll's in to the same folder as erl.exe and
werl.exe. I can't easily check which files these are but I think they
are all named like mfc*80.dll.

good luck,
vincent
