I have installed TexMaker 3.1 on Windows 7. I can compile in pdf without problem. I would try to compile in HTML, what can I do? If I try to gave directly latex2html %.tex I get Error : could not start the command.

Any idea?

Did you use a % sign in the file name, or is that a typo? – Peter Grill May 13 '12 at 2:39
According to What is the status of latex2html?, latex2html is no longer om active development. Perhaps you should consider tex4ht. – Peter Grill May 13 '12 at 2:52
i get xhlatex %.tex and process seems so long, it's normal? – Mariano May 13 '12 at 9:38
is a typo, for the name file without extension. – Mariano May 13 '12 at 9:39
Process is starded 57 mins ago and is still running O_o – Mariano May 13 '12 at 10:37

You need to install latex2html. It is separate software.

Instructions for different platforms are here http://www.12000.org/my_notes/l2hwin/ On windows, it is a little bit more involved to setup. On linux, is is much easier.

I suggest you install vbox, and install linux as guest OS, and install latex and latex2html on there.
