I do not remember seeing the above error myself. I also have
windows 7, and latex2html-2008 version and MiKTex2.8.

I can only suggest to look at my report on the installation:


and make sure all the steps you did are ok. Most of the problems
with l2h are due to configuration issues, software versions mismatch,
and such.

This is all what I can suggest at this time, may be some one else
can have better advice.

good luck,
