However, this must be the cause of the problems. I just tried adding Python
to the PATH environment variable, and everything worked perfectly.

Maybe LyX is tricked in some way by the python.exe that Microsoft puts in
the PATH? (It's not a real Python, just something that tells you how to
install it.) With this, you can start "a Python executable", but it will
not execute any script (I believe it always returns an error code).
