[plt-scheme] Still having trouble getting Tex2Page working...

I haven't gotten any responses, so I thought I'd try again.  Some
additional clarifications:
I'm running on Windows XP.  I have MikTeX installed.  I have PLT 372
installed, and the plt directory is in my path.

When running tex2page, it generates an html file with some
template-ish stuff, but no actual content, and it reports the error I
described below.

I tried downloading the additional tex2page support files, and copying
the .tex and .sty files directly to my miktex directory.  I also tried
creating a TEXINPUTS environment variable pointing to the directory
containing the tex2page.tex and tex2page.sty files.  I also tried
invoking tex2page from inside of scheme, rather than using the windows
executable.  Nothing made a difference.

Any ideas?

My scheme directory containing tex2page is in my path.  I go to the
 directory containing a sample tex file (story.tex), and type:
 tex2page story
 at the prompt, and get the following error:

 This is TeX2page, Version 20070609 (MzScheme 372, windows)
 file-exists?: expects argument of type <path or string>; given #f

 Any idea what's going on?  I've tried other formulations, explcitly
 giving the file's directory, for example, but with no success.
