Hi, Duncan & Uwe:

       Thanks for your suggestions. I uninstalled and reinstalled MiKTeX, and the problem went away.

       MiKTeX seems to malfunction when installed anyplace but the default location. Because of security problems I had had with Vista, I've been installing things like R and MiKTeX under my user account, not the default "C:/Program Files (x86)". When I reinstalled it, I put it in the default location and eliminated this problem.

       Best Wishes,
       Spencer
