# LyX: cannot convert file. Error occured while running

I am using LyX 2.0 on Window 7. could anyone help me out?

Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. – e-birk Mar 20 '13 at 16:21
LyX depends on a LaTeX installation. Which (La)TeX distribution are you using? On the command prompt you can test whether pdflatex is working by something like pdftex '\empty Hello world!\bye' which should produce the file texput.pdf. For more details, see en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Installation. – e-birk Mar 20 '13 at 16:29
