Thumbs down Create Catalog Error

I have created a catalog in the past. However in 0.8.4 I receive the following:


calibre, version 0.8.4
ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Generate catalog

WindowsError: [Error 183] Cannot create a file when that file already exists

Am I doing something wrong??

PS: it still works in CSV output, but not for epub or mobi output

UPDATE:

Per a suggestion, I deleted the thumbs.zip file in the catalog folder under appdata and the catalog was created just fine.

Create Catalog Error

Exactly the same thing has happened twice for me. Deleting the thumbs.zip which I found from the error box fixed it each time with the rerun producing the catalogue in .mobi format. I am also on Windows 7 Professional and Calibre 0.8.6 downloaded yesterday.

A patch has been implemented which should resolve this problem, included in next release.
