erlang uses an automatically-forked utility daemon called epmd (see 
http://linux.die.net/man/1/epmd for what it does); on Windows it might 
happen that the built-in firewall prevents this from starting. Try without 
firewall and - if it works - allow connections to epmd from localhost.
I got the firewall warning/asking pop-up too when I started it for the 
first time.
