Directory for BibTeX style files -- where do I set it?

I’m using LyX on Windows 10, with MikTeX distribution 2.9.

Lately, LyX has had problems with finding the location of *.bst styles in MikTeX. I had to manually browse through the MikTeX directory on my computer to find the directory of the relevant *.bst files. Also, the entire path of the directory shows up in the style field:
[cid:image002.jpg at 01D60749.26083F10]

In documents, the Style shows up without the path (e.g., just “agsm”).


  1.  What is going on?
  2.  Where in LyX do I set the path for *.bst files so that LyX lists all styles?

[I also tried to update MikTeX, but it has one of it’s hick-ups. Tells me “Something went wrong”, and then ask me whether I want to se more information (“Yes”, “No”, etc.). When I click on “No”, the same message pops up 2 more times... Very annoying.]
