And I'm unable to get the DOS prompt back to just plain C:\. Maybe I've forgotten something really simple about DOS.
The DOS prompt is not the culprit. Once you get to the C:\Documents and Settings\whanson, type cd "Application Data\lyx20" (not sure the quotes are necessary, but they can't hurt) and see if you get there. If not, from the C:\Documents and Settings\whanson prompt type cd "Application Data" mkdir lyx20 cd lyx20 which should get you to where you need to be (C:\Documents and Settings\whanson\Application Data\lyx20). Once that's your prompt, run the Python command, slapping quotes around all paths to be safe. Paul
