Unhappy Calibre Conversion Error

In attempting conversions, the job does not compete successfully and I am getting the following error below. Can someone help me decipher the problem?

Your TEMP folder is set to D:\ ?

This has Read/Write access?

Set your TMP and TEMP environment variables to some sub-folder of D:\ rather than D:\ itself.

I have reset the variables TEMP and TMP to D:\TEMP (and created that subfolder in the D:\ partition) but I am still getting the error with the last line:

WindowsError: [Error 3] The system cannot find the path specified: u'D:calibre_0.8.41_tmp_69_3rb\\xnrwyd_epub_output\ \*.*'

Note that it is still using 'D:'

I can read/write to the D:\ partition.

Thanks for the quick reply ... reboot did it.

Has this been a change? (because conversion had worked previously with that old TEMP variable.)
