I can reproduce the same problem as Andrew with a fresh 64-bit LyX 2.4.
@José : reconfiguring LyX does not solve the problem. It really looks like
it cannot find Python.
Is there any way to get the console output? I think the answer lies in
STDERR, somewhere…

By the way, would it be possible for the installer to add the version name
in the shortcut for the Start menu? Right now, only the folder with the
shortcut has the version, but this information is lost as soon as you
search in the menu.
