Lyx 1.5.2 PDF preview not working

Bull Trout
just installed lyx 1.5.2 using Win Installer on Vista.  New machine, no
previous versions of lyx present.

When I use the PDF preview button to view document I get the following

C:/Users/name/AppData/Local/Temp/lyx_tmpdir3152a06012/lyx_tmpbuf0\ folder
does not exist.  The file may have been moved or deleted.
Do you want to create it?

I answer 'yes'.

The pdf file is created and can be viewed by navigating to the above
directory and clicking on it, but it does not open directly.

Is there a solution to the problem?

thank you.
