Hi all,
I'm having some problems with the installation of latex2html-99.2beta8. I have:
Windows Millennium
Active Perl 5.6.1
MikTex 2.3
Ghostscript 8.00

Before I ran the install, I changed the followings lines of the file prefs.pm:

$prefs{'EXTRAPATH'} = 'D:\\archiv~1\\gs\\gs8.00\\bin;D:\\netpbm\\bin';

 $prefs{'PREFIX'} = 'D:\\latex2html';
#$prefs{'PREFIX'} = '/usr/local';

Then I  ran install, and the config.log file says:

config.pl, Release 99.2beta8 (Revision 1.32)

Note: Will install...
      ... executables to   : D:\latex2html\bin

As far I know, nothing wrong is up to this point. The problem arise when I execute the test.com (fist I changed the environment memory to 1024 of this file).  When the conversion arrives at the conversions of images, in the shell appear>

Converting image #1
the search directory of COMMAND is wrong
too much parameters
too much parameters

some more lines like those, and the shell froze. I have been reading the files of installation of the program and I couldn't find the source of the error. It seems to me that the problem is with my system, but I would be appreciate if someone could help me. Thanks.
