Guess you are currently supposed to use `make' to build the user guide.
You just run `make' and it builds eps files (encapsulated PostScript)
from the pngs from the repository using ImageMagick's convert, runs
latex once, bibtex twice and then reruns latex until all references
settle, finally it runs makeindex (see Makefile for details).

The graphics are missing because you missed the convert step and the
citation because of the bibtex step.

Unfortunately I don't run LaTeX on Windows - and if needed to I'd
probably check if cygwin had TeX - so I can't help with MikTex or
TexMaker. Sorry.
