SOLVED: Problems running calibre 0.4.56 on Windows

Interestingly enough I had the same problem on my Mac last week. When I try to run calibre on Windows I get a nice hour glass and then nothing. I don't even know how to troubleshoot this on Windows. I have re-started and re-installed but no luck.

Also, does anyone know of a good sqlllite browser/explorer for Windows? I want to get to the database for calibre outside the program. Thanks!

I tried completely uninstalling and re-installing, with a reboot in between (aka universal windows cure) and it still doesn't work. weird.

Looks like my database got corrupted somehow. Thing is, I can open it in an SQLite database browser just fine.

I moved the file, got the same error. I uninstalled, rebooted, and re-installed, but now there is not a library1.db anywhere!

Can anyone send me or post a "clean" database file?

If there is no library1.db file on your system it should get automatically recreated. I would suggest doing a find files to make sure there is no library1.db

Well there was a backup copy in a folder on a different drive. I copied it over (I think it was from 0.4.51) in the Documents and Settings folder (which I think is the default) and I got the exact same error.

It works for me. I'm guessing its a permissions problem. Check that you have write access to library1.db and the folder it is in.

Yeah that looks fine to me. I am running under the user Admin on my system and it's located in the c:\documents and settings\admin folder.

Is that the default location in the settings? Is there a way to check what the setting is on my system without opening the app?

Well I am completely stuck now. I have tried uninstalling, rebooting, and then installing a older version: no luck. In fact, on the re-install there's not even a library1.db file at all. It doesn't create one. Putting in my backup fails with the same error. I will try installing it as a different user.

Hmm perhaps you can try deleting the settings. Unfortunately, depending on your version of windows and the upgrade history of calibre, they could be in a couple of different places, one of them being the registry.

Well that was weird. I installed the app as a new user and it works fine. I checked perms on the old user and they are fine. That's really bizarre.
