There was a bug in the first version of the Windows installer. To fix 
your problem,


1. uninstall LyX _completely_
2. reinstall LyX 1.6.7 using the alternative Windows installer:

Thanks for the advice,

I tried it. The reinstallation solved the issue with the language change, but 
it did _not_ solve the file-window-problem. I still cannot use it.

Do you have another idea?

Thanks a lot,

Florian

Because its LyX 1.6.7 was compiled using MSVC 2008 and SCons and 
thereofore doesn't show the problems of the other installer that was 
compiled with MSVC 2010 and CMake.
The CMake problem is now fixed, but I don't know the MSVC issue. 
Therefore I recommend what I know that works.

File window does not open

2010-07-18 Thread F S
Hi,

I just installed Lyx on Win 7, 64 Bit, German. Lyx (1.6.7) is also in
German.

there is one big problem with Lyx that I can't work around. Any time you
click on something, which should open a file window (e.g., open a file, new
file from template, save as, open a skin file, ...) LYX goes to background
(change of color, like it should) but comes back on top after 1/10th of a
second without showing the file window. In other words, I never see the file
window. 

Also changing the GUI-language doesn't have any effect (I prefer German, but
thought that that might be related to the problem). 

Does anybody have an idea what the problem might be? I tried reinstalling
and rebooting so far. Also removing the write protection attributes from all
files in the Lyx16-Folder didn't have any effect.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Florian
