Having trouble migrating calibre library

I've tried the strait forward and simple computer library switching process outlined in the Calibre FAQ. However, i get an error (see below) and from looking at the error message it wants me to delete my library.
help please
not sure if it matters but the original setup was on a x86 running winXP and the new setup is an x64 and running win7

ERROR: Invalid database: <p>An invalid library already exists at X:\Calibre Library, delete it before trying to move the existing library.<br>Error: attempt to write a readonly database
