I believe there's your problem. The 'convert' used by tex4ht is the
ImageMagick convert utility, not Microsoft's filesystem converter. You
can download the Windows binary for ImageMagick from
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows. Make
sure that the option for "Add ImageMagick directory to system path"
(or something like that) is checked during installation.

I was able to generate the HTML file, bitmap maths PNGs included, with
a plain 'htlatex test4httest" on Windows XP after installing
ImageMagick. My tex4ht.env (the one for Windows that came with MikTeX)
is unchanged except for replacing all occurrences of c:\tex4ht\texmf
with the actual path to my TEXMF tree.

Hope that helps!
