Due to a number of users reporting problems with Erlang R14B on certain versions
of Windows we now release a completely new prebuilt Windows self
installable package.

The corrected Windows package as well as a complete source package is
available at http://erlang.org/download

Please read the Readme below carefully.

Bug fix release    : otp_src_R14B_erts-5.8.1.1
Build date         : 2010-10-06

This is a correction package for windows only. No other platform is affected.

--- erts-5.8.1.1 --------------------------------------------------------------

    OTP-8876  	    Windows 2003 and Windows XP pre SP3 would sometimes not
	            start the Erlang R14B VM at all due to a bug in the cpu
	            topology detection. The bug affects Windows only, no
	            other platform is even remotely affected. The bug is now
	            corrected.
