I am overwhelmed by the many helpful advises. For the time being I will
use my linux LyX and ask my colleague to use MikTeX, since at the start
I want him to be able to read all my lyx notes in which I collected the
results of new publications since the last edition in 2015. I remember a
note where TeXLive was recommended over MikTeX for some reason. I guess
this is no issue any more. I have to dig into the Github proposal for a
possible later use. Does John's advice to use identical versions of LyX
mean to use 2.3.3 (which I use) also under Windows? I did not find this
version for MikTeX.
Thanks a lot to all of you,
