error message

I have looked for this answer in so many places so I will try here too.

After I download the program and then install it. During the set up it says that my library is corrupt and to create a new file. I do that so it is empty. Nothing in it at all. Then its says that is also corrupt and closes. I have created this file in several different places on my hard drive. I have no idea why? Anything would be helpful.

Just FYI: I have uninstalled it and re-installed it three times. The problems continue.

The first thing to try is disable your antivirus temporarily and then start calibre from a command prompt like this:

calibre --with-library "c:\users\allyson\mylibrary"

replace the path in the above with the path to an existing, empty folder.

Yah that didn't work either. But I finally did get it to work.
