In the past, with 0.7.x, I could replace some calibre sources in a binary install on windows. The files reside under Lib/site-packages/calibre/ .
After upgrading to 0.8.17 I notice this folder is no longer there.
What is the current method to replace just a few of the Calibre source files in a binary install?

Run calibre from source, see http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/develop.html#windows-development-environment

So the alternative you suggested last year doesn't work anymore?

All the python files are now inside pylib.zip, you could replace them in there if you really wanted to, but running from source is a lot easier.

In this particular case for this particular end user, replacing the files in pylib.zip is more practical, and works like a charm. Thanks for the suggestion.
