book designer problem

Hi,

I just installed Book Designer at home (followed the wiki page) and it's nearly working perfectly.. I can do nearly everything but "Make eBooks"->"Sony Reader (lrf)" is not working.

When I select that or press this button in the toolbar just nothing happens. All other menu options in "Make eBooks" work, just the first one not

Anyone an idea ?

Try removing everything you have running on system start up and see if it works. If it does, then try adding it all back in one program at a time.

Probably a silly question as you followed the wiki, but I assume that you copied and pasted all the upgrade files to overwrite the initial install?

Have you created the directories that you might need that re not there? Some have said that under vista you need to create certain directories. Have a read here...

I thought about creating fb2 books first and then a converte from fb2 to lrf .. but I didn't try that yet .)
