The value 16777215 is made by pstoimg, and it means that the gs 
returned the error status < 0. I think your gs failed to make the
pnm file from the PS image imageXXX.ps by some reason. 

If you succeeded in making the pnm file by pstoimg.bat on your 
desktop machine but not on your laptop machine, I think there are
some differences as running the ghostscript program. However, if 
you succeeded in making the pnm file by hand on your desktop and 
laptop machines, I don't know the reason well.

Which do you set the variable on either machine, or both 
machines ? If your pstoimg.bat has the line about 'GS_LIB' like

 $ENV{GS_LIB} = 'G:...' unless(defined $ENV{GS_LIB});

your pstoimg.bat will change the behavior whether the variable is
defined or not.
