It looks like you are running PSPP directly. Maybe the manual tells you to do so, but you actually want to run PSPPIRE, the GUI shell.
When I install the latest 64-bit Windows PSPP from http://pspp.awardspace.com/ I can start PSPP(IRE) the same way I start all Windows 7 programs: Start > All programs > PSPP > PSPP
PSPPIRE is also the default handler for .sav files, so if you navigate to the examples folder ("C:\Program Files\PSPP\share\pspp\examples" or Start > All Programs > PSPP > Examples) and double-click on phisiology.sav, it should bring up the PSPPIRE data window. On that window, select File > New > Syntax and paste your syntax ("EXAMINE height weight BY sex /STATISTICS = EXTREME (3) /PLOT = BOXPLOT /COMPARE = GROUPS.") into that window. Then select Run > All.
The error about 'name' not being a variable is because name isn't a variable in the physio dataset. In PSPPIRE it's very easy to see what variables are n a dataset, especially using the "Variable View" tab of the data window.
When I start PSPPIRE and paste your shortened command (and add a trailing period) I get boxplots (see the screenshot).
