Dear all,

Following Ross Moore's suggestion, I carefully checked the output of "test -debug" and found more clues. The following is the output of the process of one image:

-------------This command should create a file p1744.t01 in the temp directory,
-------------but I find there is no such a file, but another file p1744.t00!!
-------------Is pnmcrop.exe bad?
-------------So I tested it manually by typing the following commands:
-------------"cd C:\ChinaTeX\Temp\l2h1332\"
-------------"pnmcrop.exe  < p1744.pnm > p1744.t01"
-------------A new file p1744.t01 is successfully created in the temp directory,
-------------and the following output is generated in the screen:
-------------"C:\ChinaTeX\TeXTools\bin\pnmcrop.exe: cropping 2 rows off the top"
-------------"C:\ChinaTeX\TeXTools\bin\pnmcrop.exe: cropping 1 row off the bottom"
-------------"C:\ChinaTeX\TeXTools\bin\pnmcrop.exe: cropping 2 cols off the left"
-------------"C:\ChinaTeX\TeXTools\bin\pnmcrop.exe: cropping 4 cols off the right"
-------------Apparently, pnmcrop.exe is OK.
-------------What is the reason of my problem??

Error while converting image

Error: Cannot read 'img3.gif': No such file or directory

PS: I have also tested Darrell's suggestions, but my problem still remains. In fact, I know every item mentioned by Darrell except the one about the file ".latex2html-init". But I find the changes on ".latex2html-init" made no any influence on the generated HTML in my computer (Win2000+MiKTeX 2.2.6).
