Elixir install issues - crash dump is being written to: erl_crash.dump

Tried installing elixir using the web setup and when I logged into my command line window the following shows:

λ elixir -v
{"init terminating in do_boot",{undef,[{elixir,start_cli,[],[]},{init,start_em,1,[{file,"init.erl"},{line,1077}]},{init,do_boot,3,[{file,"init.erl"},{line,785}]}]}}

Crash dump is being written to: erl_crash.dump...done
init terminating in do_boot ()

Can somebody guide me as to what may be wrong here?
Thanks in advance!

What version of Erlang have you installed and which version of elixir did you try to install? Because of saying webinstaller, I assume you are on windows?

Yea windows. Elixir 1.8.1 the latest @NobbZ

And Erlang? The error is typically for an Erlang version that is lower than what is officially supported.

@NobbZ Thank you so much for the tip about ensuring Erlang version is up to date with the Elixir version. It’s working now. Thanks!!!
