Yes, you do have separate user directories (which is good). The configuration logs in the user directories look fine. Both of them found MiKTeX. In particular, the 2.0 log shows that it has the correct converter path for producing PDF output, so View > PDF (pdflatex) should be working in 2.0.

In each version of LyX, what do you see in the "Converter" and "Extra flag" fields when you go to Tools > Preferences... > File Handling > Converters and highlight "LaTeX (pdflatex) -> PDF (pdflatex)"? What do you see when you highlight "LaTeX (plain) -> DVI"?

The configuration logs that I previously posted were in C:\Program Files\LyX16\Resources and C:\Program Files\LyX20\Resources. I found them via a Windows Explorer search. They were the only hits for "configure.log". Now, following your suggestion, I looked in C:\Documents and Settings\<my login id>\Application Data\lyx16 and in C:\Documents and Settings\<my login id>\Application Data\LyX2.0. There I found the two configure.log files from the reconfigurations I did yesterday and the day before. Why the Explorer search didn't find them I don't know. (I'm attaching these two logs.)

In view of the various paths mentioned in the previous paragraph it seems that I do have two separate user directories, right?

I can't View or DVI the help files in either 1.6.7 or 2.0.0
