Well the windows version is english.
But the regional option is set to portuguese.

But I think this is not the problem.

What do you think the problem is? I don't have the code... but I am guessing it is trying to read the "old" version db to convert to the new version... but I don't see why it there is no ini file. Perhaps it's just trying to read the new db which wasn't created when it expected it to be.

Kovid... isn't there a way to create an empty db using the command line, or sqllite itself?

its probably some path related issue with being on a non english windows machine (windows' multi-language support is a prehitoric disaster).

do the following:

make sure c:\calibredb exists and can be written to by the user. then at a prompt run:

Code:
calibre-debug -c "from calibre.utils.config import prefs; from calibre.library.database2 import LibraryDatabase2; path='c:\\calibredb'; prefs.set('library_path', path); db = LibraryDatabase2(path); db.refresh()"

I think he meant that you should create it to test the command he is giving you.

I'm a terrible packrat and I think I have every Windows version of the Calibre install EXE that I've downloaded (haven't downloaded EVERY version, but I'm pretty sure I have the last one that built a database file as opposed to a folder of separate files - can't remember, it's .83 or .84, right?)

Kovid, would you have any problem with my sending it to sergio?

I'm at work right now, but I could do it once I get home.

Well after testing in converting files, working with feed as far as a can tell
its working fine.
As I didn't use the last version (87 i guess), I'm hapy with the 83, I and I will keep on this version.

Thanks, for this good work.
