If you are using pdfTeX version 1.0 the following piece of code in
protcode.tex causes the problem:

    \ifnum\pdftexversion > 13 
        \ifnum \expandafter`\pdftexrevision > `g
    \fi \fi

The check for \pdftexrevision fails.

Just add the lines:

    \ifnum\pdftexversion > 99 

and it should work for the current and future versions.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
