I'm trying to run Erlang on Windows Vista.

Having installed Erlang, when I try to run it I get the following error message:

    C:\Program Files\erl5.7.5\erts-5.7.5\bin\werl.exe

    The application has failed to start because its side-by-side
configuration is incorrect. Please see the
    application event log for more deatils.

 My knowledge of computer science does not extend to "side-by-side"
configurations - has anybody
got a magic spell that I can use to make this error message go away.
