Hi,

Somewhere while searching for a solution I found the mention of html2lrf-function, but I don't know where I should put that or how to use it.
Could anybody please let me know the best way to fix this?

thanks a lot in advance.
Cheers.

The error message says exactly what's wrong - it's a bad lit file - see the final line. The way to fix it is to find a legitimate source, or if you purchased it to go back to the seller and get a good copy.

Next time wrap spoiler or code tags tags around large dumps of debug output. Thanks.
