eBookwise Librarian / 1150 and Windows 7

Quick notes on getting eBookWise Librarian working properly with Windows 7

First off after you get librarian installed etc you most like have found a error saying that you have XXX number of books available in your bookshelf but none are in the right format for your reader.

Also if you noticed you should have this error in the messages section for Librarian:
Error opening\creating HOSTS fileerror=<5>

The problem is that the permissions on the Host file for windows 7 wont allow Librarian to modify it.

Here is what you need to do,

Got to this directory:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

Right click on the file named ... hosts

Click Properties
Click the Security tab
Click the EDIT button
Click on the Users option (in the window labled Group or User Names)

In the window labled "Permissions for Users"
click all the buttons in the "Allow" column

now click "OK"
Click ok again to close the Hosts Poperties window

You should be all set now, restart eBookWise Librarian and you should be able to access your books again.

===========================

This procedure is also what had to be done for Vista it appears.

I tracked down this information from the person who created Librarian on thier website at www.breeno.org/eBook.

The link to the specific section talking about the change is:
