Eugene Surowitz,

TeX is not required for the TeXmacs for Windows version.
It has many TeX fonts already built-in. But to get a
larger set of fonts, you can optionally also install TeX.
I have not tried PCTeX but I know tha installing MikTeX
works. I think that as long as the TeX fonts are in the
standard location, then TeXmacs will use them.
