This half worked - after a reboot (which takes a long time, minutes
would you believe) Erlang half
starts - but running werl.exe gives this error message:

(no error logger present) error: "Error in process <0.2.0> with exit
value: {badarg,[{erl_prim_loader,check_file_result,3},{erl_prim_loader,check_file_result,3},{init,get_boot,1},{init,get_boot,2},{init,do_boot,3}]}\n"
{"init terminating in
do_boot",{badarg,[{erl_prim_loader,check_file_result,3},{erl_prim_loader,check_file_result,3},{init,get_boot,1},{init,get_boot,2},{init,do_boot,3}]}}

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot ()


Abnormal termination
