[erlang-questions] Erlang machine stopped instantly (distribution name conflict?).

I have a (rebar3-generated) project using Erlang 20.3 that I try to
start on Windows 10. I can "install" the Windows service, but when I
try to start it, I get this

"Erlang machine stopped instantly (distribution name conflict?)."

error in the Windows logs. I can start a node (using werl.exe) with
the node name (at least with the node name that is supposed to be
used). On Google I found plenty of this errors related to RabbitMQ,
but I haven't find a solution that's applicable to my case yet (I mean
deleting RabbitMQ app data won't help me). I'm not quite sure how to
debug it at all - how can I see exactly what command is executed to
start the Erlang VM?
