I have reviewed that page extensively.  "C:\Users" is the new "/home"
equivalent in Windows 2008 (not sure why they keep changing it).  I have
tried copying the .erlang.cookie into several different directories in
my user folder (including the %APPDATA% directory).  I've also launched
an erlang shell (using erl5.7.1/bin/erl.exe -sname "test" -cookie coo)
and erlang:get_cookie/0 matches the contents of the system
.erlang.cookie file.

I have changed the provided rabbitmqctl.bat command to include the
"-cookie coo" flag, and still no dice.
