When TeXShop and you are using the *same command*, then it cannot  
happen that the *same command* produces different results for the  
*same file*. Except, maybe, the environments in which the command runs  
are a bit different...

So: Check also TeXShop's preference settings! (And please include the  
error message and some context around it next time!)
