You're right. It does not create the image files even in a Unix system with the tex4ht.env available in your archive. 

 t4ht -f/tex4httest 
 Entering tex4httest.lg
 System call: if exist zztex4httest.ps DEL zztex4httest.ps >null
 sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
 --- Warning --- System return: 512

I could successfully generate image files for your math in a GNU/Linux and OS X box without problems using a tex4ht.env for unix. I don't have a Windows system to try the example files.

Anyway, tex4ht.env for Windows doesn't seem correct to me. Karl, we need to fix the tex4ht.env for Win.

By the way, have you tried unix version tex4ht.env in a Win32 system? Does that work?

Best regards
