Since that is a configuration that I do not use,
can you experiment with the configuration options so as to find a way
to get this working.
e.g. you may nee to use quotes "......" around the main root path
for the LaTeX2HTML installation.

Sorry. This *cannot be fixed*, at least not easily.

Reason:  \( .... \) is standard LaTeX for inline mathematics;
         which is similar to TeX's  $ .... $ , but not exactly the same.

         You really should not use this for a different purpose.

Hmm. Well, the code failing here may be a good thing.
If it gets beyond this stage, it could well fail at a different place.
Not sure; I'll experiment.

Hope this helps,
