I have recently installed version 1.6.3 of Lyx using the standard installer.  
The installation went smoothly.  I have installed on a Windows XP machine, and 
on a Windows Vista (32 bit) machine.
However, I seem to have one problem. If I open my files using the standard 
double click technique the figures will not open. I get the error:
Error converting to loadable format.
The figures are EPS, and they all work with version 1.6.1 (which was the last 
version I used).  This problem did not occur in 1.6.1.
However, if I open lyx from a command window by using lyx.exe, and then open 
the files then the diagrams render OK.
I have encountered this problem on three different machines, so I am fairly 
sure that it is not a machine configuration problem.
So in short the work around is to change the opening association to lyx.exe and 
always get a console window.
Has anyone had trouble with this?
Is there a fix?
Thanks in advance for any help.
