Hello Kristian,

At first, thank you for your answer - i was nearly blowing up today 
because normaly i get my TeX-problems
solved by recherching a little bit in the internet. Good to know how to 
show the root directories in Miktex!

I`m now giving a try to TexLive2010 - the full-scheme version - and i 
hope this will work since somebody
wrote in forum that with his TeXLive2010 version he was able to use 
oolatex without big configuration.

It also seemed to me that this is more used than miktex by people wich 
also use tex4ht features.

What do you use?

Have a nice evening,
