Help with python (ereader2html) stuff?

Okay, here's the deal!

I have windows XP.
I have successfully used this to convert multiple books in a cmd window.

Something like >> python.exe ereader2html.py BOOK.PRC BOOK/ "YOUR NAME" CCNUM

It's worked fine repeatedly, but when I tried it today I am receiving an error that says:

'python.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Can someone please tell me what to do?

THANKS!!!!!!!

open a cmd window and type path. See if the python folder is listed in the path. If not add it or cd to the folder containing the executable.

The directory for Python is not in my path yet Python programs work fine. That's because Python sets up the system so that when you type ereader2html.py it knows it's a Python program based on the file extension. So there is no need for Python.exe on the command line. Just start witht he program name with the .py extension.

In other words, use:

Code:
ereader2html.py BOOK.PRC BOOK/ "YOUR NAME" CCNUM
instead of:

Code:
python.exe ereader2html.py BOOK.PRC BOOK/ "YOUR NAME" CCNUM
