Angry calibre does no longer run on USB-stick

I was very much frustrated when I found out, that the new versions of calibre do not run on USB-stick (as I had version 0.5.5 on one). And on my computer I am not allowed to install calibre when I am not an admin. So for me I must use just the old versions that run on my USB-stick and I am very sad about it .

What makes you think it will no longer run on a USB stick? I have no problems doing this. What OS are you trying to do this on? If necessary I can upload the Windows batch file I use to run Calibre in this mode which has worked for me using any of the 0.6.x releases or the current 0.7.x series.

Could you please state which version of Calibre doesn't run on your USB stick?
And can you further tell us what you do to get it running from USB stick, do you use a batch file or do you just drop an installed version of Calibre on your USB stick.

Regards,

Joop
