How do I set parselog flag  in the converter and where would I find the log file? Is it just placing "parselog" in the flag option or "parselog=TRUE" or something else?

Maybe you will get helpful output if when you start LyX on the command
line you use "-dbg". For example:

  lyx -dbg any

should give a lot of output. Perhaps there's a better flag to choose.
