I am helping a friend with installing latex2html under Win95.
When running config.bat I get the log file shown below.

I do not understand why the ghostscript version cannot
be determined. It seems capable of locating gswin32c.

Has anybody expirienced a similar problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
