OzTeX is apparently unmaintained for more than a decade.  The first
official release of pdfTeX came out in 2001 and teTeX was discontinued
in 2006.  Gerben Wierda retired Jan 1 2007 at 00:00 CET.

I also strongly recommend to use MacTeX instead.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
