Hi, all-

Hoping this is just a simple configuration issue.

I've got MiKTeX loaded on my windows XP machine and am running texpoint with
power point 2007.  I am trying to use \frac  without success.  The latex
code in the edit Latex display is as follows:





After hitting "make display" there is a failure and I get the message below
(some of the paths have been edited for privacy).  Does anyone see what is
wrong here-- why I cannot get \frac to compile?

Thanks in advance!
