I just did what Kovid said to do, and what I expanded on - it works

I keep Calibre Portable 32 bit in C:\Program Files Portable\Calibre Portable 32 - this is an arbitrary location that happens to suit me.

I copied it to C:\Program Files Portable\Calibre Portable 64

I downloaded and installed 64bit Calibre (to C:\Program Files\Calibre2)

I then copied everything in C:\Program Files\Calibre2 to C:\Program Files Portable\Calibre Portable 64\Calibre - telling Windows to overwrite everything.

If you find the overwrite awkward - then delete everything in C:\Program Files Portable\Calibre Portable 64\Calibre before you do the copy.

I then ran C:\Program Files Portable\Calibre Portable 64\calibre-portable.exe

see attachment - look at the status line and the location of the config files.

I have not done any testing beyond "Oh look, it seems to work'

@nothingness - if you do what Kovid suggests (augmented by my cook book instructions) you should have a 64 bit Portable Calibre - which you can put wherever you like. As theDucks has pointed out the default library will be where the portable version of calibre lives - but you can create other libraries elsewhere.

Now I'm off to rappel down the fiscal cliff - woo hoo
