The path to inline.pdf is relative to the file and so is the output.

To start put inline.pdf in the same folder as the file, run the code and the jpg will be created in the same folder.

I can not remember if you need to install ghostscript first or second.

I do not get the problem but some people have a problem with windows selecting its convert program not the IM one. I beleve you can rename the IM convert program to something like imconvert and use imconvert instead of convert.
