I'd like to thank folks for their suggestions on --shell-escape.

On my IMac (running Snow Leopard and Mactex), I added --shell-escape to Texwork prefrences, Typesetting, pdflatex command line. On my IMac, the attached file compiles and shows the graphic.

On my colleague's Windows laptop, running Miktex 2.8, we also added --shell-escape to Texwork preferences, but the graphic does not show up. We are stuck as to what to do next.

Can someone on this list compile this in windows using miktex and see if they get the graphic to show up, and if so, share any configurations they made to Texworks?
