I took your suggestion and went this route.  I installed auctex
11.13, and the latest version of miktex.  I found a sample tex doc and
created a file called test.ltx and copied it in there.

It looks like this:


    The foundations of the rigorous study of \emph{analysis}
    were laid in the nineteenth century, notably by the
    mathematicians Cauchy and Weierstrass. Central to the
    study of this subject are the formal definitions of
    \emph{limits} and \emph{continuity}.

    Let $D$ be a subset of $\bf R$ and let
    $f \colon D \to \mathbf{R}$ be a real-valued function on
    $D$. The function $f$ is said to be \emph{continuous} on
    $D$ if, for all $\epsilon > 0$ and for all $x \in D$,
    there exists some $\delta > 0$ (which may depend on $x$)
    such that if $y \in D$ satisfies
    \[ |y - x| < \delta \]
    \[ |f(y) - f(x)| < \epsilon. \]

    One may readily verify that if $f$ and $g$ are continuous
    functions on $D$ then the functions $f+g$, $f-g$ and
    $f.g$ are continuous. If in addition $g$ is everywhere
    non-zero then $f/g$ is continuous.


I compiled (C-c C-c) and then viewed the results (C-c C-l) which was:

    Running `LaTeX' on `test' with ``latex --src-specials 
    This is TeX, Version 3.141592 (MiKTeX 2.3)
    ! I can't find file `nonstopmodeinput{test.ltx}'.
    <*> nonstopmodeinput{test.ltx}
    Please type another input file name: 

My emacs with respect to auctex looks like this:

    (add-to-list 'Info-default-directory-list "e:/packages/auctex-11.13/doc/")
    (setq load-path (cons "e:/packages/auctex-11.13" load-path))
    (require 'tex-site)
    (autoload 'reftex-mode     "reftex" "RefTeX Minor Mode" t)
    (autoload 'turn-on-reftex  "reftex" "RefTeX Minor Mode" nil)
    (autoload 'reftex-citation "reftex-cite" "Make citation" nil)
    (autoload 'reftex-index-phrase-mode "reftex-index" "Phrase mode" t)
    (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'turn-on-reftex) ; with AUCTeX LaTeX mode
    (add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'turn-on-reftex) ; with Emacs latex mode

Any ideas?  Even if this were to compile I haven't specified yet what
viewer to use as I didn't see where in the auctex customize area.

Thanks again.
