Subject basically says it all: When I try to edit a LaTeX child

document window) I get an error message 'LyX: Cannot edit file.
Auto-edit file "path-to-file" failed.'
It does work with LyX child documents and it also works with LyX
188.8.131.52, which is also installed on the same machine.
It did not work with 2.1.0, either.
As far as I can see the paths/settings are the same in 2.1.1 and
184.108.40.206, but please let me know whether I should check something
I'm on Windows 7 btw.
If you can run LyX from a terminal, you're likely to get more robust
error messages. You can also try View> Messages Pane, and activate
"Files used by LyX".
