Repost:To remove ebook library 3.0 and go back to 2.5

People are having trouble finding this thread so I am reposting it in the correct forum

To remove ebook library 3.0 and go back to 2.5
My system kept shutting down 3.0 when I tried to transfer books this is how the sony tech had me reinstall 2.5.

In the control panel unistall the ebook library 3.0

Then go to computer (be sure to be able to view hidden files, to do this click organize in the upper left corner, then folder and search options, then click view, then show hidden files and folders.)

Okay back to the instruction. Go to Computer and click drive C:
Click ProgramData
Delete the files Kinoma and Marlin

Go back to C:
Click Users
Click your Name
Click AppData
Click Local
Delete the files Kinoma and Sony Corporation

Here is the link to reinstall the 2.5 Library:
http://download.sony.com/prs/ebookli...0Installer.exe

I don't know if this has been posted but for those who really can't get ebook library to work I hope this helps.

Alas!

It worked!!!

I was just about to give up on the library version released 10/22 and go back to version 2.5 again and I tried just one more thing. Temporarily turn off your virus/system protection software before trying to install the new version. I run Kaspersky which can be rather aggressive. Kaspersky didn't give any warnings when I tried to install the new version 3 but I kept seeing a message from the Sony installer that said the installation had been interrupted and could not continue. I did not uninstall 2.5; I just chose check for updates in the library software menu.

Hope this helps someone else!

Thanks Autumnsong, your post-uninstall file cleanup instructions solved my problem ... although the link to 2.5 doesn't work (for me at least), I succesfully reinstalled v 3.0.01.10191 and I'm back in action

Thanks Mark for the heads up! I believe I fixed it and it should work in the future.
