I've been trying to compile LyX 2 myself but I can't start the resulting executable (the Resources directory is missing a lot of subdirectories). I don't know what the problem is, I exactly followed the instructions from the programmers. The last step, "compile the INSTALL project in MSVC" succeeds with 13 successful operations (and none failed). Does anyone know what the problem is or does someone maybe have a working executable that you could send to me (via Yousendit.com or similar)?

Expanding a comment into an answer...

The [email protected] mailing list is the first place to check if you have trouble getting recent releases to work. Michal Skrzypek put together and tested an installer for the most recent Lyx release, Lyx-2.0.0rc3, and announced it there.

Lyx.org has some general information about the Lyx mailing lists.
