Under Windows Vista/7 - 64 bit, doxygen 1.8.0 fails to resolve the placeholder in its configuration file for the "ProgramFiles(x86)" (without the quotes) environment variable, which usually points to the "C:\Program Files (x86)" directory in a 64 bit shell. So if you run the 64 bit doxygen executable, it is unable to call e.g. the 32 bit HTML Help Compiler hhc.exe (which is is located there by default), if you reference it by the $(PROGRAMFILES(X86)) in the doxygen configuration file. Referencing hhc.exe directly by "C:\Program Files (x86..." works fine.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.
