Have you loaded the add-on Graphics`PlotField` prior to using PlotVectorField? Try - on a fresh session, so as to avoid possible shadowing effects - In[1]:= << Graphics`PlotField` In[2]:= PlotVectorField[{Sin[x], Cos[y]}, {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, Pi}]; It works like a beauty. Very likely you hadn't loaded the add-on when you tried to PlotVectorField. If you ever run into this situation, i.e., invoking a function which belongs to some add-on package before loading it, you must first Remove the function and then load the package. Otherwise, it won't work. Look for "shadowing of names" in the Help Browser or in The Book.
