This is probably the hardest thing about getting this package to work :)

You can enable this in TeXworks by heading to the Preferences,  
selecting the "Typesetting" tab, select "pdfLaTeX" in the "Processing  
tools" pane, clicking "Edit" on the right, and adding "-shell- 
escape" (without the quotes) to the list of "Arguments".

(Although I thought this was enabled by default...maybe I'm mistaken,  

Hope this helps,
