Didn't work for me:
Bought a new MacBook Pro.
Did fresh install of TeX from Weirden's with iInstallerV2.
Checked it with TexShop, and it works fine on the example files.
Installed and opened PDF Equation.
Tried the example shown in the screen shot. No go. Error message: LaTeX failed to create a PDF file. Maybe your input was invalid?
It crashed once while retrying it.

Version 0.6

It seems I included a package that's not universally available in the default LaTeX template. Version 0.7 should fix that, as it doesn't include that package by default.

If your problem persists, please contact me and give the output of the log window (Cmd-L).
