Re: Biblatex-LyX Windows problem

Problem solved. In that particular installation of MikTeX biber was at 
version 1.5, while the version of biblatex (updated via MikTeX package 
manager) required version 1.7. Done and it's all right now.


Thanks again to Andrew Parlsroe who kindly sent a help message!

Dear Experts,

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!

On Windows Vista, in the preamble of a document I worked on recently, I 
have two lines that essentially are


\usepackage[style=numeric]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{D:/path/to/file.bib}

I think you are missing the \addbibresource. Alternatively, I think you 
can place your bibliography, file.bib, in your texmf tree and dispense 
with the path in that case (but you still need the \addbibresource).

No, the line is OK (in fact, as I wrote on Linux I have no problems).
