@eftpower - Where did you install Calibre Portable?

Calibre Portable expects its libraries to be in the Calibre Portable directory, the one where the calibre-portable.exe is located, it won't retain a record of libraries kept elsewhere, even if you use Switch/Create to access a library elsewhere.

Nor does it make any entries in the Windows Registry for things like Open With, or sprinkle shortcuts on desktops and Start Menu folders.

If you want Calibre Portable to retain a record (in its list of libraries) of a library that is elsewhere on your computer, put a symbolic link to the library in the Calibre Portable folder and use Switch Create to access the symbolic link. The mklink command is used to create symbolic links. Whilst this will work it effectively makes that installation of Calibre Portable as Calibre Not Very Portable
