Is this supposed to work on windows? I can't get it to work on my Win32 Python 
2.7.3. I get the following error:


C:\dev\code\nbconvert>nbconvert.py -f html staticHTML.ipynb
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 1439, in <module>
    main(infile=args.infile[0], format=args.format)
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 1414, in main
    htmlfname = converter.render()
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 287, in render
    self.output = self.convert()
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 277, in convert
    converted_cells.append('\n'.join(conv_fn(cell)))
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 727, in wrapped
    rendered = f(self, cell)
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 844, in render_markdown
    p = subprocess.Popen(['markdown'], stdin=subprocess.PIPE, 
stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
  File "C:\dev\bin\Python27\lib\subprocess.py", line 679, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "C:\dev\bin\Python27\lib\subprocess.py", line 893, in _execute_child
    startupinfo)
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified

After installing ActivePerl, putting Markdown.pl in the nbconvert directory
and changing line 844 to

  p = subprocess.Popen(['markdown.pl'], ...

I then get a different error:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\dev\code\nbconvert\nbconvert.py", line 1439, in <module>
    main(infile=args.infile[0], format=args.format)
