The feature you are tryinng to use is on a network resource that is not available.
Click ok to try again or enter an alternative path to a folder containing the installation package calibre 9.16 msi in the box below.
i was able to cancel that error message and install 9.18 but when i went to add some books it refused to add them.
My next step was to try and uninstall 9.18 but that would not uninstall, again giving the error above, so i had to redownload 9.16 and run the uninstaller and point it towards that file. This did allow me to uninstall calibre 9.16 but when i rechecked in add and remove programs calibre 9.17 was there now, which i had to uninstall again.
Then finally i was able to install 9.18 with no error messages.
Has anyone ever come across this odd behavour. when i went from 9.16 to 9.17 i noticed nothing wrong.
Updater? Calibre updates
are full installs (overwrites).
Where do you store the download? (Running updates as large as directly from the net is NOT advised. Things do go bump frequently
which is why most programs have a Download phase, the do the install when all checks have been completed.)
