Where did you tell it to place the menu? It might be on the top row off of the screen. You might have to click the little arrow to the right to see the icons not displayed.
Also your path for the configuration directory has the same accents that seemed to get in the way of the initial plugin install. Try copying your calibre configuration to a cleaner path. You can use this batch file to start calibre and point to the new configuration location. Change path locations as required. Everything after REM are comments and don't actually run. Save as calibrerun.bat
REM Specify the location of the Calibre Config files
SET CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY=C:\My Dropbox\CalibreConfig
REM Specify location of calibre program files
CD \Program Files\Calibre2
REM Display settings that will be used
REM The following gives a chance to check the settings before
REM starting Calibre. It can be commented out if not wanted.
echo "Press CTRL-C if you do not want to continue"
REM Start up the calibre program.
REM Normal - Start calibre.exe
REM Debug w/log file - calibre-debug -g 1> log.txt 2>&1
Edit: This is what happens when I help the wife with some chores. Kiwidude jumps in with the same work around.
