I am using MiKTeX 2.9.

I would like to convert a LaTeX file to HTML.

I have seen here (http://access2science.com/latex/tutorial_txht.xhtml#x1-50001.2) that I can use the mzlatex command to convert this way but I get the following error:

mzlatex is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file

It is mentioned in the above link (http://access2science.com/latex/tutorial_txht.xhtml#x1-50001.2) that MiKTeX 2.9 has some problem and so I have to install version 2.8 but I do not see MiKTeX 2.8 giving following message:

MiKTeX 2.8 has been released in September 2009.This version has reached the "end-of-life" status. It will not be possible to install packages from the remote package repository.The current release is 2.9.


I am not sure What I am supposed to do now.

I tried but it is giving following error:

  • as @AndrewSwann said, mzlatex is not standalone script, you can use mk4ht mzlatex

  • According to your screenshot you have written the command in the wrong order, it is asking for mk4ht mzlatex yourtexfile as michal.h21 said. Commented Mar 11, 2014 at 10:59

Making sure the current path is that of the file test.tex to convert, use

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\tex4ht\htlatex" test.tex "html,mathml"

instead, as explained in TeX4ht (htlatex) on MiKTeX 2.9 to convert LaTeX into MathML, and then into Office MathML with Word 2010 and MiKTeX 2.9's tex4ht not working.

Alternatively, try

htlatex test.tex "xhtml,mozilla" "-cmozhtf",

pretty much equivalent to mzlatex, as explained in https://stuff.mit.edu/afs/athena/system/i386_deb50/os-ubuntu-9.04/usr/share/doc/tex4ht/html/.
