Calibre doesn´t start...

Hello,

I know that there are a couple of threads on here, dealing with this problem, but I can´t find one that is similar to my output...

Code:
C:\Users\luis>calibre-debug -c "from calibre.gui2.main import main; main()"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "debug.py", line 96, in <module>
  File "debug.py", line 80, in main
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "D:\Program Files\calibre\library.zip\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 1261, i
n main
  File "D:\Program Files\calibre\library.zip\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 218, in
 __init__
  File "calibre\library\database2.pyo", line 390, in __init__
  File "calibre\library\database2.pyo", line 360, in connect
sqlite3.OperationalError: unable to open database file

C:\Users\luis>calibredb list
Benutze Bibliothek in D:\Media\Bücher\LRF
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "cli.py", line 448, in <module>
  File "cli.py", line 445, in main
  File "cli.py", line 124, in command_list
  File "cli.py", line 38, in get_db
  File "calibre\library\database2.pyo", line 390, in __init__
  File "calibre\library\database2.pyo", line 360, in connect
sqlite3.OperationalError: unable to open database file
The problem is here
Code:
Benutze Bibliothek in D:\Media\Bücher\LRF
calibre is telling which database it is using. But the folder does not exist anymore. This was an earlier version I tried. I uninstalled and deleted the databse before I tried this version of calibre...

So, what should I do to get it up and running? BTW, this is on Vista32.

Cheers

Oh, and tried deleting all the files in the folder with global.py as wel...

Now it just asks me to specify a folder for the databse and then disappears...

You can't use paths with non ASCII characters in them for the database location on windows.

Make a folder called C:\library (make sure it is writable by the user whi is going to use calibre)

and then start calibre with

Code:
calibre --with-library C:\library
After that calibre should start normally

Woo, you´re quick!

Thanks a lot for the help - It would never have occured to me that the Ü was to blame...
