Do you have any non-ASCII characters in your paths? This seems to cause
problems for Erlang on Windows.

A possible workaround is to use the "short" paths as returned by "dir
/x". In your case it should help if you set %RABBITMQ_BASE% to a folder
name that does not contain non-ASCII characters, either elsewhere on
your filesystem or by using "dir /x".
