RE: LaTeX Error: File `subscript.sty\' not found.

I have tried this, and manually put the subscript.sty file in the latex folder as you described. After reconfiguring and looking in LyX under the menu Tools - TeX Information - LaTeX styles, subscript.sty is still not visible however. When I want to view the PDF it still comes back with the abovementioned error.
On my desktop, where the problem occurs, I run LyX and MikTeX 2.9 under Windows 7. On my small HP netbook, where I use XP, the problem does not occur… However, brewing a PDF on that small machine takes a long time. I remember having lots of difficulties with administrator/user rights when installing LyX 2.0 on both machines. Probably there is a slight difference between both installations.
I have a workaround by using math for subscripts now.

I came across this problem recently and I solved it like this:
1. download file subscript.sty from http://ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/fragments.
2. Create new folder 'Subscript' in your MiKTeX installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex)
3. Copy the file subscript.sty to the folder 'Subscript.
4. Reconfigure LyX.
I am using MiKTeX 2.9 and LyX 2.9 on WinXP. This procedure solved my problem.
I hope it can be useful in your case.
