I don't know what you mean by this. You are supposed to install it without changing the default installation location. You should not move anything.

Can anyone tell me what step I am missing or doing incorrectly?
Make sure that the Kindle Previewer is installed properly.

If that does not help you will need to post the log from a failed conversion so that I can see what is going wrong. See "Dealing with Conversion Errors" in the first post of this thread for instructions on how to do that.

It should in most cases, but the results may be better from some formats (epub, azw3) than from others (mobi, pdf). Some content cannot be converted to KFX, such as large HTML tables.
