Hello Kiran,
Perhaps you could give some more info on the steps you took to install it?
The more info you give - the more likely someone may just try to duplicate your steps and checkout the problem.
I've installed it on a windows 2000 box in the past..  but I think it was a pretty manual affair.
I compiled each .yaws file and just treated it as an erlang library rather than as a standalone application - but that's a tedious way to do it.
Also.. why are you using 1.66 & not 1.68?
I'm assuming you're downloading from http://yaws.hyber.org/download/    or has someone provided a more windows-friendly package that I'm not aware of?

Subject: [Erlyaws-list] Yaws crash on startup, on Windows - repost

Second attempt at posting this question.

Hello list,
I successfully installed yaws on my WindowsXP box, and when I try to start it using the yaws -i option, it crashes.
I noticed that a similar issue has been reported on the yaws wiki: http://yaws.hyber.org/wiki/showPage.yaws?node=SomeProblemsAndTheirSolution , and is not yet answered.
Searched this mailing list, and used Google too... not too much luck.
yaws version: Yaws 1.66
erl: 5.5.1

This is my first attempt at learning Yaws, so any help will be useful. Thanks.

Klacke, and Julian,
Thanks for the response.

Let me elaborate the steps that I've taken to install and configure Yaws.

Windows XP SP2
Erlang Ver: 5.5.1
Yaws Ver: 1.68 .. my initial posting had 1.66, following which I downloaded the latest version.
Cygwin Ver: Cygwin DLL cygwin-1.5.24-2

Followed the build, configure, and run instructions listed here: http://yaws.hyber.org/yaws.pdf
Repeating the steps I followed, just to double-check.
  1. Downloaded yaws: http://yaws.hyber.org/download/yaws-1.68.tar.gz
  2. Extracted the contents to a <drive>/yaws folder.
  3. Opened cygwin, and cd to yaws folder.
  4. ./configure && make
  5. make local_install
  6. ~/bin/yaws -i
This is when I receive the error:
------------------ERROR REPORT---------------------
$ ~/bin/yaws -i

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot ()

------------------END ERROR REPORT---------------------

I have a crash_dump file, if that's of any help - 53KB gzipped file. Will email directly to an e-mail address (the mailing list requires the mail to be 40KB or less).
Please let me know if you require any further information.
Thanks for your time and help,
