I need a command line version ov povray on Windows, similar to Linux version.
So I dowloaded megapov, but I have some problems:

1) The help file is unreadable.

2) I don't know how to configure the command line version (megapov.exe).
   I can run it , but it only generates a small 100x100 pixel image file
   with .tga extension. How can I change resolution and file format ?
   I tried to put in the bin directory a povray.ini or a megapov.ini file,
   but they seem to be ignored, because nothing changes.
Thank you
Luigi Fonti

Megapov files have to be loaded into the same folders as pov-ray 3.6 for 
Windows. WinZip can do that automatically for you. It introduces a number of 
additional possibility not found in 3.6, but otherwise works in exactly the 
same way as 3.6.

Thank you for the suggestion. I tried but nothing changes.
megapov.exe executes, but it does not find colors.inc if not present in the /bin
directory, it ignores all the settings in the povray.ini file, it only produces
a small 100x100 .tga image file.
