Windows XP Users,

The attached message string details my story.  Basic Summary:

My OS is Windows XP, and I've been using LyX 1.6.7 without problems for
about a year.  Starting a couple of days ago I've been unable to update or
view the DVI versions of my files.  Clicking the dvi or PS icons brings an
error message: "Cannot convert file  An error occurred whilst running
phython -tt".

I downloaded LyX 2.0.0, and I can open my documents using it.  But, when I
do, I get a message saying that I need the document class "article", and I'm
directed to of the User Guide.  Unfortunately I don't understand the
information given there on how to install the appropriate package files.

After I get into one of my documents (using 2.0.0) and I click View (which I
assume is asking for the compiled version that the dvi button yielded in LyX
1.6.7), I get a file name error message:  "The directory path to the
document cannot contain spaces".

The suggestions offered by Richard Heck and Julien Rioux, while much
appreciated, have not helped.

Given this new information, can you get any output if you put your LyX file in a directory path which does not contain spaces in its name?
