I have a letter set up on a Mac, which works fine, but copying it to

See the KOMA-Script manual for more informations about options and
their values.

Is there something obviously different between the Mac and Windows that
could help me solve this problem.

Mac prefers to store text files in UTF-8, while Windows tends to use either 16 bit unicode or ISO with codepages. Another issue are line endings. So you often need to convert text files when moving from one system to another.

Open the files with a text editor (such as TextWrangler) that can "translate" them to Windows.

Thanks, but immediate problem is now that after re-installing Lyx, I discovered none of the document classes had been installed, so I've installed Koma - Script via MikeTex and reconfigure either freezes or gives me a reconfigure error.
