This seems to be a / vs. \ problem: Did you specify
C:/LOCAL/GSTOOLS/GS5.50 manually? It should read
C:\LOCAL\GSTOOLS\GS5.50, whereever you have specified it.

The config procedure does not automatically turn all '/' into '\', while
for certain operations Perl silently accepts / on non-UNIX platforms, but
not for all. Therefore all paths that are manually specified must be
written in the correct OS-specific form (for now; I'll have a look at the
code whether it can be generalized to accepts both / and \ on Win32

If this does not solve the problem, then please send me the output of

C:\LOCAL\GSTOOLS\GS5.50\gswin32c.exe -h

I'll have a look at it, maybe it is something exotic...

Hope this helps,
