Well, that suggests that it's unable to find
d:/Program Files/ DRS/DRSWeb/erl5.7.4/lib/gs-1.5.11/priv/tcl/bin/wish84s.exe

It could be spaces related - in fact that's pretty likely - that
particular form of spawn will think that "d:/Program" is the name of the
executable. But this is all from the "erlang installation verification"
which I've never even heard of before, and it would not in the least
surprise me if that thing doesn't work reliably on Windows.

We have spent a fair amount of time making Rabbit be robust against
spaces in paths, so it shouldn't be that issue affecting Rabbit.

Do you have the rabbitmq logs themselves available? They sometimes tell
us more than just the crashdump.
