Any idea what could be the source of the problem?


No, to be able to reproduce this, can you please provide a
_small_ LyX example file?

If you send me the file, I can try to reproduce it. This is a
known sort of problem, in the sense that I know what kind of thing
can cause this. It's likely a math inset (code 11) that LyX is for
some reason failing to initialize properly.

Well, I tried to file you sent, and it doesn't crash here with 1.6.4svn, 
on Linux.

Trying to strip the file to the bare minimum, I located the line where the

I moved the cursor in that line, entered a new line and removed it, the

I can reproduce the crash. Can you please report it to our bug tracking system:

Installing one version over another is in general problematic on Windows (not only for LyX). But 
when you uninstall LyX 1.6.2 and then install 1.6.3 it should work.

I cannot speak for the standard installer, but as this is possible with my alternative installer, I 
guess that also the standard installer supports this. (There is an option in the uninstaller to keep 
your preferences.)
