Where is the location of pdflatex when installed through Lyx on Windows?


Modern Versions of Windows - since Windows 7 - have the where command installed. It checks whether an executable is in one of the folders that is listed in your $PATH.

Enter the command on the cmd or in Powershell:

PS C:\Users\me> where.exe pdflatex

If Lyx installs pdflatex on the $PATH, you should be able to find it with this method.
