Calibre Crashes

Hi,

Recently calibre has been crashing whenever I press any button on it (convert, edit metadata etc.). I ran the program in debug mode and got this (I found some of the fonts by searching for them and deleted them but I couldn't find others and calibre still keeps freezing):

Please help! I love this program and am deeply frustrated by this.

Thanks in advance.

You have to remove all those invalid files and directories from c:\windows\fonts. You might be able to find some font cleaner program on the net that will help you.

I have tried a font cleaner too but nothing seems to work. Is there nothing else you can recommend or have tried. There are a few other people who have posted the same problem before but no one seems to have a solution.

My experience is that when this occurs (as it does from time to time), I start calibre and leave it for around 15 minutes. The problem goes away.

My guess is that there is a font cache that is getting messed up. Leaving it alone lets Qt rebuild that cache.

YMMV

Thanks Chaley, worked like a charm. Dunno how or why, but it did.
