# Biblatex-LyX Windows problem

```Dear Experts,
```
I am not a regular user of LyX, but I do suggest this excellent programme to my students for their thesis/dissertation and the result is normally very good. Personally, I prefer using LaTeX directly.
```
```
I use Biblatex with LaTeX and I was making some experiments with LyX to see what I can suggest to my students. I followed the instructions given on http://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex and it's all right on my xubuntu 13.04 Linux box, provided you accept some problems with the 'verbose' styles. I tried the same files on Windows and (despite putting the bib file on the regular biblio directories, in this case the 'base' folder) I can't obtain a PDF with the citations in order. I am puzzled because I exported the file as a TEX file, run biber, but even there I could not get the desired result.
```
```
I am not familiar with Windows, I'm afraid, but I'm sure that it is simply a PATH problem. I also tried to use the current directory asinput folder for the BIB file, but I could not deal with the '/' or '\' problem. I read some threads about this but could not solve the issue.
```I tried:
* C:\soandso\soandso\file.bib
did not work because it was interpreted as a command
* "C:\soandso\soandso\file.bib"
no success either
* C:/soandso/soandso/file.bib
did not find the file

If a minimal file can be useful I'll upload it.
Many thanks for your kind attention and for this splendid programme!
