In Case this is useful to others, here is the Windows batch file I use to convert a large number of .ly files.  Change LY_HOME to your taste:

@echo off

set LY_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\LilyPond-latest\usr

for %%f in (%*) do (
    echo Converting %%~nf...
if exist %%~nf.orig (
del %%~nf.orig
move %%f %%~nf.orig
"%LY_HOME%\bin\python.exe" "%LY_HOME%\bin\" %%~nf.orig > %%f

And if you need to restore all the .orig files:

@echo off

for %%f in (%*) do (
echo Restoring %%~nf...
del /Q
move %%f

Hi Saul,

I can confirm the strange behaviour of Frescobaldi 3 in Windows 10, too.

The "OK" button is greyed out if there are no changes, or, more precisely,
if Frescobaldi thinks there were no changes.
The question is: why are there no changes?
Has convert-ly been executed at all?

As far as I can remember, there were some issues some years ago with
convert-ly output or log that Frescobaldi couldn't grasp anymore, but this
should have been solved in the meantime...

In this case, the path to convert-ly is
C:\Program Files\LilyPond\2.xx.x\usr\bin\

In Edit -> Preferences ... -> LilyPond Preferences -> LilyPond versions to
use you can specify "Tool Commands" via Edit....
But, with or without explicit path for convert-ly, this doesn't help,

All the best,
