I found the problem by consulting the manual (section 10). (Actually, I
remember that had the same problem on some previous occasion with some
different operating system.):
pdflatex is run in a dedicated directory IPELATEXDIR, which Ipe creates
the first time it is used. In my case the default for this dedicated
directory is C:/Program Files/ipe-6.0pre28/latexrun. The problem is that
ipe is not allowed to create a directory in
So I had to create this directory manually (with an administrator
account), give everybody write-permission, and now it works.
(The cleaner solution is probably to use something like
(which is %LOCALAPPDATA%\ipe\latexrun)
