I guess the `exec-path' Lisp variable in your system contains
the "D:\\ap\\pspad" directory. Normally the value of `exec-path'
inherits the `PATH' environment variable. It's not wonder if
there are executable files in the "D:\\ap\\pspad" directory.
Emacs-w3m looks for the `convert' program in all the `exec-path'
directories. However, it seems to be an XEmacs bug if the
`convert' directory is recognized as executable file. Could you
try the following form? To do that, copy the line into the
*scratch* buffer and type the `C-j' key at the end of the line.
Regardless of the result, you can specify explicitly in the
~/.emacs-w3m.el file where the real `convert' program is:
(setq w3m-imagick-convert-program "D:\\some\\where\\convert.exe")
By the way, there are many bugs in XEmacs of the versions prior
to 21, and I don't put faith even in the latest XEmacsen. Though
I was an enthusiastic XEmacs fan in the past, I had deserted it
in the end of 2003.
