Hi,
this suggests that the doc to html converter, wvWare, could
not handle a particular Word file. (In fact, it caused the
converter to crash.) Does it manage to convert any files at all?
If not, it could possibly be some sort of system/install error,
or you could be using some version of MS Word that the converter
doesn't like. I don't think it fully supports files made by Word 2000
or later as Microsoft changed the file format again and the
format isn't documented.
