 Hi,
 you may try following: 
 open Miktex - maintenance - package manager: 
 probably you´ve to select the repository (i.e. CTAN) 
 then: edit/select installable or all packages  (choose document 
classes you
 need),
 task/ install 
 Afterwards you´ve to reconfigure lyx (tools) , then close lyx and 
start
 again. 
 Hope it works

Thanks a lot, Andreas. 

It worked. One problem was: The warning note said I'd need scrbook.cls 
and
I kept looking for it. Once I got to the proper package name (koma-
script),
things became straightforward.

Regards.

PS: A further question, non-essential at this stage. While trying to 
access subsidiary documentation for knitr, I got a message about a 
module. When I tried to add the requisite module, Rnw, I was told that 
I'd need a package: knitr-Latex. I can't find the package.

Hi,

I just heard about LyX and, with great enthusiasm, set out to use it. I
download the bundle 2.1.2 for Windows and installed it. MiKTeX also got
installed. It looked like everything went well, but ..

Each and every Document Class is Unavailable. There're hundreds listed, but
none that can be used.

I open any of the included manuals and a window pops up saying Document
Class is missing and that I should look at section 3.1.2 of User's Guide. I
looked at it and it asks me to look at Customization manual! I looked at it,
but it is well beyond a beginner. (An early step says Find it at CTAN or
whatever.)

Also, instructions don't cover Windows 8.1, which I use (that may or may not
matter, if they're the same as for Vista. It does matter that instructions
are inherently difficult and not explained with sympathy for newcomers.)

The manuals say that there are innumerable Latex additions, they can't all
be included/supported. Granted that, I was hoping that just a few
widely-used Document Classes (e.g., article, book) would come standard.

Document Class may not be the end of the problem for a beginner. In
addition, for some manuals, there's a second pop-up window that says that I
should install some module.

Should someone like me just give up and go back to Scientific Word?

TIA.

Hi,
