Have a look at the thread 'Cannot convert images in test sample file' at
http://tug.org/pipermail/latex2html/2001-November/thread.html to see if
that helps at all.

There have been a number of similar reports but I'm not sure anyone has
totally solved it as I don't think it's a problem for all Win NT/2000/XP

In pstoimgbat is 'my $def_tmp' correct or is it still pointing to
In fact I would go through all the *.bat directories in \bin and check
that the paths there are correct and don't involve ~ .
