Subject basically says it all: When I try to edit a LaTeX child document from within LyX 2.1.1 (by clicking 'edit' in the 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, 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, but please let me know whether I should check something specific.
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".
