Subject Re: Windows Server 2003 4GB file issue not solved
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 15:51:08 GMT

Are you sure you have removed the old version? Sometimes the erlang is still has running processes
and it is just suggestion that you are running still the old version in the background.
Reinstall and reboot could help ... It is "Windows" 

Another suggestion run the couchdb not as windows service.
Is this somehow related to your problem?
