[erlang-questions] running tests with ct_run (cross target environment)

Hi,

I am porting OTP to an embedded platform and trying to run standard OTP
tests on target. I am new to erlang, so apologies is this a FAQ, though I
have not found any explanation on the web. I've tried running directly
using ct_run and also erlexec, but the results are the same: "Error
detected: "Failed to start CTH, see the CT Log for details"". Looking at
the log reveal *no* details about this failure. What am I missing? See
below for output...

Thanks!

Using erlexec command:
