Help! Calibre Error-message

Hi!
Im new to calibre and have big trouble getting starting. Calibre just wont start up. When i start up Calibre im asked to choose a location for my e-book library.
The folder "My documents" is high lighted. I choose this location, Calibre starts up, but I get a error-message, bad database location:C:\users\"my username"\documents
I click "ok" and im asked again to choose a location for my e-book library. This time
the "Calibre libary" folder is high lighted, and i click "ok". This times i get a
new error-message:
Python function terminated unexpectedly
unable to open database file
RemoteTraceback (most recent call last):
File"site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line128, in run
File"site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line119, in connect
OperationalError:unable to open database file (Error Code:1)

I run Windows 7 64bit. Ive tried to delete and re-install 4 times but still not working.

Hope someone can help me!

Thanks for fast reply!

The first time i install Calibre i tried to make a new folder i called "my e-books" on my desktop. When I deleted Calibre and installed it again "My documents" was highlighted so I tought that was a default folder for my e-books. But I later
tried the folder witch Calibre made, Calibre-library. But that wont work either.

Sorry for my poor english and bad translations, but I run a Norwegian OS.

Try creating a folder in a location with no special characters in the path. calibre sometimes has troubles when the path to the library has non english characters in it (it seems t depend on your windows version and codepage). So use something like

c:\my library

Just installed and getting the same error messages.

Install will not allow me to assign a Library location no matter where I put it or how simple I make the path.

I get the same process and error messages as Lars did, then it just closes.

Tried running as administrator, closing anti-virus, and bypassing firewall.

Running fully updated Vista.

Any help is greatly appreciated...............
