Cannot load newly installed Calibre
Really am trying - but i'm about to give up. Keep getting the SAME error even after installing/removing/installing again (windows XP Home)
ERROR: Bad database location: Bad database location u'C:/Documents and Settings/Lori/My Documents/Calibre Library'. calibre will now quit.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 191, in initialize_db_stage2
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 132, in __init__
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 110, in connect
WindowsError: [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: u'C:/Documents and Settings/Lori/My Documents/Calibre Library\\metadata.db'
Can anyone help????

Another possibility is that you are using a synchronization program like dropbox (but probably not dropbox, given the paths). Perhaps 'my documents' is an offline folder?
The reason this happens is that calibre touches the database, then closes and reopens it to be sure that it can do so. Synchronization programs jump in between the close and the open, locking the file so calibre cannot reopen it.
