Launching Calibre from Command Prompt

I am sure that I used to be able to start Calibre in a Command Prompt window under Windows? However with the latest release it seems to appear briefly in Task manager and then disappear. This has broken my ability to run a Portable Calibre on a USB Stick.

If I try and run calibre-debug without any parameters this also fails with some references to iPython.

Starting Calibre via a shortcut works OK.

Any idea why this happens, and if there is a way around it?

That gives a couple of "link hasn't been detected!" message and then seems to start up OK.

Hmm, and if you don't add the -g?

I get the following:
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>calibre-debug
WARNING: help() not available - check site.py
**********************************************************************
Welcome to IPython. I will try to create a personal configuration directory
where you can customize many aspects of IPython's functionality in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\_ipython
WARNING:
Installation error. IPython's directory was not found.

Check the following:

The ipython/IPython directory should be in a directory belonging to your
PYTHONPATH environment variable (that is, it should be in a directory
belonging to sys.path). You can copy it explicitly there or just link to it.

IPython will create a minimal default configuration for you.


Please press <RETURN> to start IPython.

OK, but does that give me any way to find out why the calibre.exe program silently exits when I try to run it.

Yeah to do that you'd have to use a debugger.
