I've also come across this problem 2 years ago and I've reported it to this
list, which can be seen in this archive:

However, that didn't get much attention and someone (that you could read
the name easily in the archive) refuted me saying that this is LyX
mailing-list, not MikTeX mailing-list!

Seems like someone had a bad day in his private life and use this
mailing-list to vent his bad mood!

Some food for thoughts: use Vista compatibility mode for the setup.

Good luck

I have updated LyX2.2.0 to 2.2.1 on my PC under Windows 8.1.
Now it is impossible to launch LyX. The following error message is

lyx.exe - Erreur d'application
l'application n'a pas réussi à démarrer correctement (0xc07b).
sur Ok pour fermer l'application.

Ouch! Do you use a 32bit version of Win 8.1 or a 64bit version? Does it
help to reinstall LyX 2.2.1 using this new installer?:

FYI, I just had today the same startup error message when trying to run 
LyX 2.2.1 on Windows 7 Professional. LyX 2.1.x versions were running fine.

I installed 2.2.1 with "LyX-221-Installer-2.exe".

Following the discussion in this bug report_
I went to:
downloaded and installed "vc_redist.x86.exe" and now LyX runs fine.

Best regards,
