I don't have any problem using these functions. The only thing I can 
imagine is that the communication between the kernel and front end to 
perform the rendering is not working correctly. Try setting the 
MathPictureBox UseFrontEnd property to false and see if that fixes it. We 
can work from there. Feel free to reply to me directly.
