It was not several minutes - it was many many minutes. Half an hour maybe.

I already succeeded at installing LyX on other, much slower computer.
It was the same version of Setup.exe. The only difference was that
they ran on XP.

How do you see it? What is the name of the package?

I didn't install it myself - it must be a dependency of something.

The report i attached is from a clean install. After failing to
install LyX for several times i wiped everything and reinstalled the
packages i need, without LyX or TeX. If any TeX-related package got
there anyway, it must be a dependency.

How can i see a list of a package's dependencies? (I couldn't find in the FAQ.)
