command line set_metadata

Okay... so I've had a script running for quite awhile that allows me to set the metadata for specific fields.

The code line is:
calibredb set_custom c:\ebooks "owned:true" "52452" "true"
custom field name: owned
New value:true
Field is a "yes/no" toggle field

At some point over the past few updates this code line has quit working. Any help?

That line is wrong, it cannot *ever* have worked:

calibredb set_custom --with-library "c:\ebooks" "owned" "52452" "true"
