The docx to html transformation is no longer working and I'm getting the following error. 

Warning: rename(./test.html,test.html): The system cannot find the file specified. (code: 2) in C:\wamp\www\phpdocx\classes\ on line 131

What does this error mean? I've seen answers that the permissions of a temp folder could be the cause. Where is the temp folder located?

That error shows when the conversion plugin can't generate the file.

Please follow the instructions available on:

to debug it.

Also please check that LibreOffice is not running 'in normal mode' (this is LibreOffice opened in the desktop) when doing the transformations.

I've seen those debugging solutions, but they only pertain to a Linux based system. I'm runnning WAMP on a windows based system. Is there an alternative solution for that type of stack?

The steps are the same, but instead of using the Linux terminal you need to use the Windows terminal.

For example, to run the example using PHP CLI mode:

C:\> C:\wamp\php\php.exe sample_1.php

You just need to change the paths to the correct ones of your server.
