Thanks for the information.  A few follow-up questions:

Did you download and install TeXworks separately, or did you use the
TeXworks that came bundled with Tex Live?

If you downloaded TeXworks separately, did you install it before or after
installing TeX Live?

Did you have to set up your path variable, or any other environment variables,
for TeXworks / TeX Live, or did the installation process do that for you?

I'm running on 64-bit windows 7.  What version of windows are you using?
I don't expect that it should matter, but have you heard of any issues
with certain windows versions that I should be aware of?

This is the version of TeXworks that was working for me.  (I downloaded
it and installed it separately from TeX Live.  I don't know what version of
of TeXworks I got when I reinstalled TeX Live, because I can't get it to
