>> Dear Carles --
>> (1) Make sure you installed everything (I think this is referred to as
>> "Collection: full" by the installer, but I may be wrong)
>> (2) Click Start / all programs / TeX Live 2016 / TeXworks  2016
>> (3) When TeXworks has launched, click File / Open and browse for
>> "eq15.tex"
