can't open calibre in window - after update to 0.4.84

I can't open calibre (windows) after installing latest version (0.4.84)..

no errors appear, but it seems to happen right after choosing a library folder, the interface appears for a second and directly dissapears..

maybe i'm not doing it right, which folder should I chose for my library?

p.s: tried searching for "library1.db", "calibre.ini" and "calibre2.ini" and they don't exist on my hard drive... also i don't have a "VirtualStore\Program Files\calibre" dir in my users folder (i'm using vista obviously).

Post the output from running the following command in a terminal

Code:
calibre-debug -c "from calibre.gui2.main import main; main()"

When you first ran calibre, did it transfer all your books to the new library? Or did it never run at all?

Delete the metadata.db file and also the file global.py in the calibre directory (do a search for it). Then re-run calibre (0.4.85)

You probably have a different problem. Post the output from the calibre debug command i posted before.

I couldn’t find the files to be deleted either, after several searches . So I deleted the programme and did a fresh install. Again, it wouldn’t start. Then, I disabled my anti virus (Kaspersky) and installed again. And it’s working! So, I’m guessing that Kaspersky was blocking something during the install? Great upgrade by the way, addition of Irish Times in news feeds a nice plus! (should add that it installed and worked without any problem on my macbook) So Vista+Kaspersky seems to be a problem, at least for me.

Hi,

I'm having a similar problem with Version: 0.4.89 on windows xp (sp3). I have tried disabling realtime protection in avast but that made no difference. The gui never shows, the application just asks about a location for the library every time its run.

Looks like some issue with the sqllite db but I don't know enough about the program to debug this issue properly.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
