Problem with Exporting

Windows 7 x64 SP1, Calibre 0.9.8 x86 and x64

If I export any book in any format from Calibre to any folder on the hard drive, the export takes place correctly and I can subsequently access and read the file.
But, just before the process completes I get this error:

calibre, version 0.9.8
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>WindowsError</b>:[Error 1155] No application is associated with

the specified file for this operation: u'C:\\Users\\SysAdmin\\Desktop'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\__init__.py", line 376, in dispatch
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\save_to_disk.py", line 147, in _books_saved
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\__init__.py", line 966, in open_local_file
WindowsError: [Error 1155] No application is associated with the specified file for this

operation: u'C:\\Users\\SysAdmin\\Desktop'


I'm not sure what Calibre is attempting to do at this time (open the target folder?), but it isn't working.
All exported formats are flagged in Preferences for internal viewing by Calibre

Has anyone else come across this and in particular have a fix?

Thanks

Try the 64bit 9.9.
I saw no trouble when saving books to the Local drive

That error is happening when calibre is trying to open the directory it saved the files to. Apparently no program on your computer is capable of vieweing directories. Either fix your computer's registry or go to Preferences->Saving books to disk and uncheck the option to view files in browser after saving.
