about 2 months ago, I had problem running l2h when I moved the harddrive to 
my laptop running XP home edition.  The harddrive had latex files which were 
processed OK with l2h on my desktop PC which crashed.

I was not able to find the problem.

Now, I got new PC running windows 7.

I followed my instructions again, as shown here


and using the same harddrive, and the same files which did not build on the 
laptop, now I am happy to say, it all builds OK !

I do not know what the problem was on the laptop, since I also there 
followed the same instructions.

The only difference, is that the new PC runs windows 7, 64 bit, and on this 
pc I used 64 bit Perl instead of the 32 bit perl, I.e. I used


instead of


All other software (as listed on the above webpage) is the same.

Any way, I am happy l2h is working again!
