Thanks in advance for any reply
I would expect there to be problems with putting a Calibre library under C:\Program Files (x86) as by default this location is protected by Windows from write access by users. I would strongly suggest an alternative location is chosen to which an ordinary user has full access rights. That location is technically possible, but it requires you to manually set up the correct access permissions at the Windows level.
