Lyx wasn't able to open DVI files with the error message MIME type application/x-dvi not supported. I looked at Lyx preferences and it's using xdg-open to open the file.

Windows XP has built-in capability for burning folders/files onto a CD ROM. Use the Recording tab in the CD-ROM drive properties dialog to configure the options: However, it doesn't have the capability to burn ISO images. On the MS site it was suggested that ISO Recorder would do the job. I tried it on two different machines and both failed with " generic error ". I'm running Windows XP professional SP2 on both. Update: Actually the above error for ISO Recorder was caused by a monitoring program the company installed to block CD-ROM write access. Although unsuccessful, ISO Recorder actually went further than other programs. cdburn.exe from the Windows 2003 Resource Kit died at 0% without emitting any error message.
