First time install issues....

I saw several different threads that referenced some of the issues, but nothing that seems to solve the problem.

Here is the debug log.

Thanks for the help.

Which version of Windows are you using? You may have to install using admin rights.

First thing to try is to run calibre ina command prompt as

calibre --with-library c:\path\to\library\folder

make \path\to\library\folder something very simple like c:\library (and make sure the folder exists)

I am an administrator.

Using a new empty directory C:\eBooks

ERROR: Bad database location: Bad database location:C:\eBooks

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\ui.py", line 472, in __init__
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 460, in __init__

DatabaseException: table authors already exists
RemoteTraceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line 116, in run
OperationalError: table authors already exists

It does create a 64k metadata.db in the C:\eBooks directory.

I did get a prompt for a new version... I will upgrade by removing completely, then install the new and see if that helps. I do remember an issue on the install, but I believe it was the table already exists error.

I'll let you know the results.

Cheers.

Successfully installed v 0.6.45 of Calibre
I chose to NOT automatically run it.
First run...
Error: Bad Database Location C:\eBooks
ERROR: Bad database location: Bad database location:C:\eBooks

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\ui.py", line 472, in __init__
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 470, in __init__
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 514, in upgrade_version_1
File "site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line 152, in run
DatabaseException: no such index: series_idx
RemoteTraceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line 116, in run
OperationalError: no such index: series_idx

It then opens a directory browser window and asks "Choose a location for your ebook library." Default is C:\Documents and Settings\TuringSMI\Calibre Library

I opened a directory window on C:\eBooks and tried to delete the metadata.db file. It is in use by the calibre.exe process. I attempted to use the C:\eBooks directory again and received the same error. When I hit ok on the error, it closed Calibre.

I then removed the metadata.db file from C:\eBooks.

Started Calibre again and received a different error message.
ERROR: Bad database location: Bad database location:C:\eBooks

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\ui.py", line 472, in __init__
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 460, in __init__

DatabaseException: table authors already exists
RemoteTraceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\library\sqlite.py", line 116, in run
OperationalError: table authors already exists

Hit OK on the error message.
It prompted for the default location C:\Documents and Settings\TuringSMI\Calibre Library.
Hit OK on the prompt...

AND IT WORKED!

That had previously failed.

I now have a metadata.db in C:\...\Calibre Library and one book by John Schember.

I've no idea what made the difference. The program currently has a file handle on both of the metadata.db files.

Closed Calibre.

File handles were released.

Opened Calibre... clean start with one file handle on the metadata.db in C:\...\Calibre Library.

Thanks for the attention.... If you understand why it originally failed, post your thoughts. Others will benefit.

Cheers.
