Can't Launch Calibre after fresh install

I am having the same symptom as Cottenball. I did a fresh install of version 4.105. When I run it for the first time, I am asked for a location for the database, I select the location and the window just starts to appear and then quits. Deleting the files that you suggested in the last threat did not change the behavior.

Here is the output of the debug file:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\HF>calibre-debug -c "from calibre.gui2.main import mai
n; main()"
Traceback (most recent call last):

calibre.library.sqlite.DatabaseException: unable to open database file
RemoteTraceback (most recent call last):

OperationalError: unable to open database file

No log file was created but I have seen one on other tries. I deleted it and it did not reappear.

Kovidgoyal, thank you for your tireless efforts on behalf of the community. You helped me when I first joined.
