You are right. The spaces in the file name were the problem. I changed
C:\Documents and Settings\Bruce\My Documents\Practice TexWorks.tex to
C:\Documents and Settings\Bruce\My Documents\PracticeTexWorks.tex
and now SyncTexing works fine.
I hadn't thought of this since the tex file was compiling without apparent
problem and since I had not had any problems using WinEdt with spaces in the

Aren't spaces in the source file name a problem? I'am surprised LaTeX at all
can process your file. Or are you using plain TeX?
There are TeX implementations on the Mac that can process a plain TeX file
with spaces in its name, but I thought with LaTeX that was inherently
impossible (because of all the ancillary files -- .aux files etc -- that
LaTeX needs to generate and read).
I wouldn't be surprised that SyncTeX doesn't like spaces either.
