Thank you for all your help. In fact, I have also put the path to Lyx's
script folder (where elyxer resides) to the path box in the preferences of
Lyx in the same time as the configuration of the Lyx->HTML conversion
command  box. If I read well Olivier's message, there is not any
contradiction between these two boxes. I have also observed that during the
first configuration,  Lyx->HTML command has disappeared from the conversion
options and I had to add it by hand.
I have erased this command and done a reconfigure and here is what I see in
my preferences file (Lyx continues to run latex and htlatex):

Concerning the path ( is in the last folder of the path)

\path_prefix "C:/Program Files/LyX16/bin;C:/Program
Files/LyX16/ghostscript/bin;C:/Program Files/LyX16/imagemagick; C:/Program

Concerning the conversion:

\converter "lyx" "html" "python $$s/scripts/ $$i $$o" ""

And this is the only element about Lyx->HTML conversion

Do you see anything strange in these items? What am I doing wrong?

I have also done another experiment: I have erased this conversion line from
the preferences files but let the path to elyxer in the path box. Then I
have opened Lyx and done a reconfigure. Then closed and reopened Lyx but
there was not any line with Lyx->HTML in the conversion box. Reconfigure
does not seem to be able to find, even it is supposed to if I
understand well Uwe. I am lost...

Last information: I have used the standard installer for Lyx under Windows
