Icon for two libraries

I have two libraries, one for German and one for English books.

I want to open each library with an separate icon. When I build the icon with the path "c: German/metadata.db" calibre opens the db correctly but alway add the metadata.db to the list.

How can I open different libraries? I know that I can open calibre and switch between different libraries but that is not what I mean.

It should be simple to create two different launchers for calibre, that specify what library calibre should open. Exactly how depends on the OS you use.

You add the following to the command to start calibre:

--with-library "path to library"
Use the library located at the specified path.
