I am installing using the installer, not installing manually.  If I install both Erlang and RabbitMQ to C:\, and do not set RABBITMQ_BASE, then yes it appears to install and operate properly.

None, yet.  The service never starts after the default installation completes, so I do not proceed to configure any plugins.

Yes.  (M:\Program Files (x86)\RabbitMQ Server\RabbitMQ)

> Does Erlang start normally without RabbitMQ? (erl -sname foo)

Yes, I believe so:

M:\Program Files\erl5.9.1\bin>erl -sname foo
Eshell V5.9.1  (abort with ^G)
(foo at SCCS004LAB)1>

Good to know ;-)
