Calibre doesn't load

When i try to open calibre, it appears in the task manager and starts chewing through memory, but never actually opens into a window. tried uninstalling and re-installing (0.1.34) but no dice. I'm running Vista.

Do you have the correct version (64 or 32 bit) for you OS and CPU.

First Uninstall
Then Delete the Calibre2 folder in Program files (X86) (the fact that there is a C2 folder left over is an indication of corruption)

Get a fresh download.
Try again

W7 x64 update worked fine

Vista!?!?!?!?!? Get rid of that horrible operating system ASAP!

Make sure there is no Anti-Virus / Firewall running, maybe they somehow stop the process.

Wait, you said 1.34, that's the linux version...

It seems that the JSON database file was corrupted. I replaced it with an archived version and it seems to be working fine now.... I hope.

@theducks & odedta: Thanks for jumping in.

Vista on release was a downgrade from XP, with broken drivers galore and the new UAC which was far too aggressive. Higher system requirements, programs tended to run slower than they did on XP, file copying took ages(!!!) and basically the whole thing was a mess.

Granted, today Vista isn't bad, in fact they basically took all the improvements of Win7 and used it to make Vista actually work.

But there is and was never a good reason to have Vista over XP or 7.
Why would you buy Vista back in the day when it was a mess? Stick with XP which works. Oh, they finally upgraded Vista so it works too? Well, they did that after making Win7 available. Lets just get that instead.
