This solved the problem i.e. changing the slashes. Thanks.

However, I still have problem which may be interesting.
I cannot get the latex2html to generate images. For example
images.pl is almost empty. Below is the config.log.

I suppose the problem is that pnmfile and ppmquant
cannot be located. One way solving this problem is to install

I did that and added it to the path, but latex2html keeps
on reading everything from the \texmf\miktex\bin
directory. Indepenent of the order of the directories in the

So my question is. Is it possible to force latex2html to
read netpbm from a certain directory? Or is there another solution?
