What install version of tex do you have?  Pdftricks relies on some 
utilities to do the ps -> pdf conversion.  If you have an older install 
of GW's tex, they are not included, so pdftricks cannot work with out 
wither upgrading tex or installing the necessary conversion utilities.

BTW, the file works fine for me.
