I'm replying to an old thread because it was so difficult to find out how to "open a command prompt" and this was the only thread I found that answered that question. It would be nice if there were a sticky thread covering this question.
Did you install Calibre or are you running on Calibre Portable?
Type into a command window (mistakenly called a DOS Window): calibredb<enter>
You should see a list of command arguments
(works on W7HP, Calibre 64 bit)
