Maybe I'm off base here, but this line seems to be saying that their  
system is trying to run tex, not latex on your file. That seems wrong  
to me (and I don't quite see how it can be true, but I don't know why  
it doesn't say format=latex). Maybe that's why they suggested  
including the style files in your tex files?!? But the real solution  
would be to run latex on your files, not tex. I suspect that when you  
look at the log files from tex runs on the same file on your machine,  
the first line will include format=latex (or format=pdflatex, or  
something), not format=tex.
