Hi All,

I hope you can help me with this.  I have used LaTex to create homework 
assignments for my students and write my dissertation without any 
difficulty.  But in trying to create a poster and more recently trying to 
write a journal article I keep having the same issues, and cannot produce 
any output.  I am currently working with the class "elsarticle" and cannot 
even run the template file.  Here is my input and output, excluding all 
the commented out options in the input.




\journal{Nuclear Physics B}


\title{Blahdiddy blah}






\bibitem[ ()]{}

("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.8\tex\latex\psnfss\upsy.fd"
File: upsy.fd 2001/06/04 font definitions for U/psy.

The build description window at this point says "GUI framework cannot be 
initialized and proceeds to open a dvi of the last thing I produced.

I do have the upsy and upzd files, from 2006 according to my computer.

Sorry about the glut of info, I didn't know what would be useful.

Any help would be appreciated!
