Unhappy Importing trouble

Can't get Calibre to import new eBooks as of about 11 p.m. last night, despite multiple system reboots.

I ran calibre-debug -g and this is what I got:

Failed to initialize plugin: u'C:\\Documents and Settings\\[my name]\Application Data\\calibre\\plugins:\\Goodreads Metadata.zip'
Traceback <most recent call last>:
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\ui.py", line 484, in initialize_plugins

File "subprocess.py", line 672, in _init_
File "subprocess.py", line 882, in _execute_child
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannnot find the file specified


I do pretty well on the user end of things, but I know nothing about packages and processes and tracebacks and so on. I am worried that the fetch module seems to have gone missing!

The only thing I can think of it to reinstall Calibre. Anyone have any better ideas?

Do a clean re-install, i.e. uninstall, delete c:\Program Files\calibre2 then re-install. And dont worry re-installing will not affect your books/settings/plugins.

I have the same problem. Well, not entirely. I can import books, but I cannot add plugins and get the same error msg. As I understand from your post, deleting program files won't affect my library in any way? Books, metadata, settings, columns will stay the same?
Just checking to make sure as redoing everything would be just terrible

TIA

Uninstalling does not touch any data.

I did this all, but it didn't help. I still cannot install Goodreads Metadata plugin. Get the same error:

calibre, version 0.8.2
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>ImportError</b>:No module named fetch

Same problem. Did the uninstall, deleted Program Files\Calibre2 and installed 0.8.4. When I try and install the Goodreads Metadata plugin I get the same exception. Tried the Goodreads Covers plugin and I get the exception with that too. I had not installed any Goodreads plugins before so there's no 'oldies' laying around. I miss having series metadata automatically provided so I'd love to find a solution. Thanks for your help guys.

It sounds like you are installing the wrong versions of the plugins. The plugins you mention above were designed for Calibre prior to 0.8. In Calibre 0.8 the API changed and so a new plugin had to be written which encompasses both retrieving metadata and covers. It is called "Goodreads", and you can find it here.
