When I open K4PC first and run the script, I get "Failed To Determine Book Path". Am I doing anything wrong? I am on Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

Thanks
Never mind... had a "duh" moment...

I'm still getting this, even after I "reset" according to Lilly's example.

I tried your suggestion, but no luck. Going to try it on a Vista laptop.

It doesn't work here. I run the initial script and below is what I get. I'm on XP Pro SP3. With Python 2.5.x.

I got the memory issue with script 2, but then I uninstalled/deregistered K4PC and then reinstalled/reregistered and both versions 2 and 3 open the K4PC exe andf show the books correctly but when I pick a book I get "failed to determine book path"; I tried both opening or just selecting it and closing K4PC and result is the same

I have XP Home Edition 2002 SP 3

Yeah, this puppy requires Python 2.6. There's some additions to ctypes I couldn't convince myself to live without.

Hmm. You are running unswindle with K4PC *closed*, yes? The unswindle script then launches K4PC for you. You do the need to open the book in question (not just highlight it). If that doesn't immediately help, could you try running it a few times, just to make sure it isn't some intermittent condition I'm not handling properly?

It seems to be working. At least it opens the program. Not sure how to get the PID. All the books are still protected.

Open the book you want decrypted in Kindle for PC when it's open. Then close Kindle for PC. A box will pop up asking you for a file name and location to save the unencrypted mobi file... pick a name, pick save, and VOILA!

Ok, I think I spoke too soon. The book the program worked on will get to page three in mobipocket reader before crashing the program, and crashed Kindle for PC immediately. Unfortunately, I'm already late for work, so will have to work on this later. Y'all have fun!
