Mr Venkatraman

Your instructions didn't solve my problem but that is due to the
massive ignorance in the area that I am groping about in. Many thanks
for the tips that you have given so far.

When I do the following:

itrans -v -i c:/amaity/example.itx -o c:/amaity/example.tex
latex c:/amaity/example.tex

the .dvi file lands up in c:/Program Files/NTEmacs/bin/

That's the directory current when Emacs is run. How do I change this so 
that the .dvi file goes where the .itx and .tex files are.

Trying to view the dvi file with

windvi c:/Program Files/NTEmacs/bin/example.dvi

brings a log file that disappears immediately. I can't view the output.

It seems like I have not been able to resolve the configuration issues. 
Any suggestions?

Sincerely -amaity.
