Please note I'm just uploading a new version of Alphatk.dmg which should

more work needs to be done to make this completely seamless... (after all 
this is still a beta release)

You probably need to readjust your tex or pdftex or pdflatex helper in the 
Config->Preferences->Helper Apps dialog.  Please see:


for some further details...

You should see the log from the tex run in the window.  Clearly somehow 
texi2html was being run instead...
