I can sympathize with your plight.  You are trying to provide access
to all the great tools and packages that have been developed, but some of
them, like TeX4ht require other third-party packages to be available.
It was particularly difficult for TeX4ht because the documentation
takes a "just use it, it'll work fine!" attitude, which, quite honestly,
I like, but if something is a little "different", it can lead to my
sort of questions.  I'm hoping that at least this current thread
of discussion will alert future Windows users that there's
something more that's needed and what can be done about it.
