### Importing Tex files

I am new to Lyx and trying to import the tex file:

\documentclass{article}\begin{document}This is a Latex document.\end{document}

I get the error:
An error occurred while running
tex2lyx2.3-f "TestLyx.tex" "TestLyx.lyx"

It seems too simple for anything to go wrong, but I must be doing something.

Thanks for any help.

Uninstalling and re-installing LyX solved the problem.
