[erlang-questions] Install win64 r15B02 on Windows 2012 server issues
Thu Nov 8 19:36:02 CET 2012
It looks like the installer does not install the vcredist x64 2010 version
and fails to detect it correctly. After I downloaded the vcredist x64 2010
and installed it the erlan win64 installation worked. I see the bin
directory! Plus the app that uses erlang is working with the erlang win64
Let me know if there is further testing I can provide. I have the log
files that I will continue to send to you.
