"C:\Users\Starson17\AppData\Roaming\calibre2"
The old config will be at
"C:\Users\Starson17\AppData\Roaming\calibre"

Now make 2 bat files on your desktop as follows:
right click on desktop and select New|New Text Document
and change its name to CalibreLib1.bat

Put this inside it with notepad:
Code:
set CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY=C:\Users\Starson17\AppData\Roaming\calibre
calibre
Then copy that bat file, rename it as "CalibreLib2.bat"
and change its contents to
Code:
set CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY=C:\Users\Starson17\AppData\Roaming\calibre2
calibre
(Use your name, not Starson17)

Now run the number 2, use preferences to set your #2 library and then never change libraries again with Preferences or the Wizard. One bat file will control lib1 and the other lib2.
I'm not trying to give you a hard time but you lost me at, "Start with Preferences|Advanced Open Configuration Directory, and open it, (close Calibre to be ultra safe) then make a copy of it."
