[erlang-questions] Install win64 r15B02 on Windows 2012 server issues

Hi Patrik,

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
installed.

Let me know if there is further testing I can provide.  I have the log
files that I will continue to send to you.

-Mark
