 Hi Dan,
 Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have been having the same 
 problem since around 2011. (And I don't understand Richard's suggestions!)

To see more descriptive error messages enable debug output for Files used by 
LyX.

To do so you have to:
1. Enable the message pane - go to the View menu and select Messages Pane
2. There you'll see the log window. At the right you select the Settings Tab.
3. Choose the Selected option at the left and then Files used by LyX at the 
right.
4. Go back to Output tab to watch the log messages while working with LyX.
