My ERL_LIBS has a space in it and it doesn’t cause a problem.

But mine points to the lib directory, not a particular application in the lib directory like Yash is doing.  I'm not sure whether that would work or not.

At any rate, I would have assumed C:\Program Files\erl5.9.1\lib would already be being loaded in, wouldn’t it?
