Viewing azw3 files with calibre viewer

I recently converted a valid ePub file to mobi and to azw3 using the standard settings. I can read the mobi version with the calibre viewer, but not the azw3 version. All I get is a question mark, and a message that Windows can't open this file.

Should I be able to read the azw3 version with the calibre viewer? Are there any special settings I should use?

I don't have a Kindle Touch or Kindle Fire, so I can't tell if the conversion to azw3 was successful.

Preferences->Behavior select azw3 as one of the formats to open with the calibre viewer. And if you want to test azw3 you should use the Kindle Previewr software from amazon.

Ah, that would explain it.

I was wondering why every time i tried to open azw3's it kept trying to (oddly) RE-ADD the book to calibre!!
