I am also unable to make rebar work on Windows.  Whenever I download
something with a rebar script, I have to basically open it in an
editor "execute" it by hand and hack everything into place... even for
straight forward things with no C compiling like gproc.  No fun at

I settled for cygwin Make, and I was able to build a working NIF
module using the compile command indicated in the NIF tutorial.  The
Makefile is completely Windows specific, but it meets my needs.  This
of course uses Visual Studio... which is a free download and really
not a big deal to install.
