I have downloaded K4PC three times in the last two days and still nothing will work after it "appeared" to crash two days ago

What gives?

What happens when you try to run the new version?

For my part, the new version of K4PC crashes shortly after I open it. I have 1.5.0 loaded and it's working. However, I have high confidence that it won't reopen once it's been closed. It's been open since Sunday.

My machine isn't particularly old...I purchased it less than three years ago. I imagine I'll have to find a different machine to use with K4PC.

Forgive the question, but have you tried uninstalling the old version and installing the new?

You say you've downloaded it, but have you installed it?

I went through the same thing last night. I had K4PC v 1.4, when I clicked on the icon nothing happened. I went on to Amazons site and downloaded and installed the new version without uninstalling the old and it worked. My tools didn't work, but after uninstalling the plugins and reinstalling it worked fine as well.

Did the same version of the tools work, or did you have to get updated tools?

ETA: I have to say, I'm actually glad I installed this new version. The old one I had was really annoying. It took a long time to start and load the thumbnails, and then it seem like every minute or two it went through the long drawn-out process of reloading the thumbnails again. So if I was trying to add archived books to different collections, it would keep interrupting me, and then when it finally finished reloading the thumbnails, it would be back at the top of the screen again and I would have to try to figure out where I was. That's not easy when you have thousands of archived books.

As far as I can tell, this version doesn't really do that at all.

I know what you mean! Fortunately, they corrected that behavior a few versions ago. I also have a large ebook library, and it was extremely annoying when the program would reload/refresh when I was adding new books to collections. K4PC still takes far too long to load, but I can live with it.

I was having a similar problem. I would double click on the icon and it would say initializing, then I'd get a Windows error message and the program would close.

I was on the phone with Amazon CS for about half an hour uninstalling and re-installing the program, but that didn't fix the problem. I was able to get the program to open a few times. But when I tried to register, I'd get that same Windows error message.

I ended up moving most of the files in the My Kindle Content to a new folder and was finally able to get Kindle4PC to work. My books now show up as archived, but at least I can use the program again.

Been busy and haven't had a chance to answer before, but yes, I did indeed install it. I just checked, and my version is the same as eskimo49 - 1.10.1 (40262). For what it's worth the book is called "Gods of Asgard: A graphic novel interpretation of the Norse myths" by Erik Evensen. I can send the book to my cloud reader and my tablet, but not to Kindle4PC.

Is it that Kindle for PC won't start for you at all, or that you can't send this particular book to Kindle for PC? There are some types of books with "enhanced content" that will only work on certain devices.

On Amazon's product page for that book it states that it is only available for Kindle Fire, Kindle Cloud Reader, Kindle for iPad, and Kindle for Android.
