Are you really on Windows ?

I think you are using graphicx package.
Please try to include the package by the 'dvipdfm' option:


If failed to include eps, transform eps to pdf manually
as Karl said:
epstopdf reverse_linked_list.eps
(or perl somewhere/epstopdf.pl reverse_linked_list.eps)

In order to embed the pdf, you have to invoke the command:

ebb reverse_linked_list.pdf

before compiling the source by latex. This command creates a file
reverse_liked_list.bb which contains information on BoudingBox.

In this case also, the above 'dvipdfm' option for the
graphicx package is important.

Best regards,
