Unfortunately, texify is not in TeX Live.  Do you find MikTeX
to be better than TeX Live.  I notice that you specify PDF.
I find DVI to be much easier to work with, however, on Windows
with TeX Live, DVIOUT is very slow, about a minute to display
per page.  Maybe I should just switch to MikTeX since I don't
have much to lose at this point.  However, TeX Live comes with
way more packages like beamer, pgf, statex that you have to
manually install with MikTeX.
