Won't start in Vista

I know you must be tired of these but I think I've been through everything in the FAQ (several times), including uninstall and reboot.

There are no ini files, I have tried removing library1.db.

Error message output below is for two runs, one with library1.db present, having been created when Calibre was run (but the GUI didn't appear) and then again having deleted library1.db just to see what happened:

c:\Program Files\calibre>calibre-debug -c "from calibre.gui2.main import main; main()"
Couldn't resolve property: linearGradient5167
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "debug.py", line 67, in <module>

sqlite3.OperationalError: unable to open database file

Sorry if it's something simple I'm doing wrong but I've run out of ideas.

TIA.

OK delete it and run the command

Code:
calibredb list
Then try running the GUI.
