This sounds like the problem described in section 5.3 of the soul manual

I don't know exactly how package management works in PCTeX, but I would  
assume one can install the ec-fonts with whatever PCTeX offers.  
Alternatively follow the advice given in the soul manual.

Remember that you must use the lines
   \font\SOUL at tt=cmtt10
for the advice in the manual to work. Melchior probably assumes you know @  
must be given special meaning for this to work.
