I would like to use imsart package downloaded from http://www.e-publications.org/ims/support/ims-instructions.html .

I unzipped it and copied on C:\usr\local\share\texmf\tex\latex\imsart-ims Then I used command mktexlsr , and compiled

\documentclass[aop]{imsart}
\begin{document}
\end{document}

as a test, but the following error message appeared.

    It seems that you're using pTeX with a version that doesn't accept e-TeX extensions. Update your TeX system. – egreg Nov 23 '15 at 11:34

The missing .cnf files are not a problem; the important issue is

! Undefined control sequence.
l.831 \protected

which means you have a too old version of pTeX that doesn't sport e-TeX extensions like the more recent releases. I can only go back to TeX Live 2012 (`pTeX 3.1415926-p3.3) and with it the test document runs smoothly

Upgrade your TeX distribution.
