Is there anything like LaTeXit, a Mac-only program, that converts math equations into LaTeX code, for windows?

This list might be a good place to start. The third item on the list, KLatexFormula, looks promising.

You can try Latex Equation editor and Laeqed.

Can't Latex Equation Editor to work. Keeps throwing unintelligible errors even though I pointed it at the files it wanted. –  Elliot May 8 at 14:53

If you use chrome, there is an extension that LaTeXifies https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dinfmiceliiomokeofbocegmacmagjhe

the best Windows editor for LaTeX/Tex is LyX

Welcome to TeX.SX. I wouldn't actually call LyX a LaTeX editor. It has it's own file format, and while it does use LaTeX in the background, you don't really have complete control of the code being created by LyX. –  Torbjørn T. Feb 21 at 22:59
    
Thanks,True enough. It really is a word processor/editor. However, all the LateX/TeX code is editable if all you want to do is write documents. How about Mathjax? I've never used it, but it does seem to be able to edit TeX source. –  Arnie Stillman Feb 21 at 23:06

For the main body yes, but not so for the preamble. MathJaX is a JavaScript library for rendering math in web browsers, and can understand some LaTeX syntax, but only stuff related to math, AFAIK. –  Torbjørn T. Feb 21 at 23:11
    
LaTeXit is very different from LyX; its purpose is to compile code snippets producing a PDF that can be pasted in another program. –  egreg Feb 21 at 23:30

LyX inserts all kinds of special stuff into the latex it generates. It's essentially a separate format. Once something has been edited in LyX, you have to do a lot of work to make it function elsewhere. SO while LyX itself is great, it is not truly cross compatible like latex. –  Elliot May 8 at 14:45

You should try EqualX. It seems to work very well. The only bad thing is you can drag and drop, you need to copy paste.
