Updating calibre portable: downloading wrong install file

When my calibre portable installment informed me that there was a new calibre version available, I let it download the according new install-file.
Just before I was about to start the actual installation, I noticed that the downloaded file was not for a calibre portable version, but for the non-portable one, due to the missing "portable" indication in the file name. Manually downloading the portable installation corrected this mistake.

So, should calibre portable not refer to the "portable" download location instead of the normal calibre download location?

Sure it does. The only way what you are describing can happen is if you run it in a non-portable way. i.e. you run it using calibre.exe instead of calibre-portable.exe. In that case it is not portable, so the upgrade link does not go to the portable page.

Ah, right. I start calibre via an icon on the taskbar which pointed indeed to calibre.exe. (it even says so...)
On removing that, recreating the icon for calibre_portable.exe and activating it, a 2nd (pinnable) icon on the taskbar appears for calibre.exe. So I guess in the past I must have removed the wrong calibre icon in some attempt to clean up duplicate icons.

Thanks.
