Thanks Alan. The problem is not with what I'm using (I don't use
Windoze/MiKTeX at all). And my author/friend is a private consultant
and so is unconstrained by university IT bureaucracy. That being said
he may have installed a minimal version of MiKTeX and as Ulrike Fischer
suggested may not have enabled on-the-fly installation.
