Hi everybody!

I'm a newbie to this list and to latex2html, so I hope 
I'm not annoying the members of this list.

Well, I just spent 2 hours installing and configuring 
ghostscript, ghostview, activeperl and netpgm on my 
windows machine. After solving several minor problems I 
finally managed to install latex2html. Everything looks 
fine now, but everytime I run latex2html on a .tex file 
it stops and echoes the following message:
 Error (home): Cannot expand other user's home directory
 at C:\PROGRA~1\LOCALT~1\LATEX2~1\BIN/latex2html.bat 
line 213

I looked in the mailing list archive, the faq file that 
comes with latex2html and the online manual, but didn't 
find a solution to my problem.

I feel pretty stupid because configuring and installing 
latex2html was rather difficult and now I stumble over 
such a dumb error.

Help, anybody?

My Specifications:

Compaq Armada 1573D

- Windows 98
- MikTeX 1.20e
- LaTeX2HTML 2K.1beta
