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. BR Now I'm off to rappel down the fiscal cliff - woo hoo Attached Thumbnails   Last edited by BetterRed; 01-01-2013 at 09:25 AM. Reason: add joke
