You (or he) has to set the appropriate PATH to contain the tools, the 
Perl\bin  the Mingw\bin and the Html-Workshop directories. You should 
respect capitalization of the path names and avoid spaces within the 
names. For the latter you can use the abbreviated directory name, e.g. 
C:\PROGRA~1\Perl\bin (or whatever) instead of C:\Program Files\Perl\bin
