Just for clarification: how do you use BibTeX? As a seperate .bib file,
or as inline \bibitem commands?
Additionally, how did you obtain TeXworks? From the official Google Code
page, from Alain's builds, from MikTeX, or did you compile it yourself?

What do you mean by "edit function set on pdfLaTeX + ... + BibTeX"? Do
you mean the typesetting engine (e.g. from the drop-down menu in the
upper left, or from the typeset menu)? If so, how is it defined (see the
preferences dialog for that)?

Are there any error/warning messages? Did you try running LaTeX/BibTeX
several times? Did you try running BibTeX manually (from the command
line)? Do you get a .bib file?

Many questions, I hope with your answers we can get to the bottom of
this and solve your problem.
