I don't really think this is the problem you have, as you are a native english speaker, but it may help you.
I don't have any accented characters anywhere in the names of my folders. However, that was at least as helpful as any other suggestion. So, thanks.

You could try removing all the files under Application Data/calibre under your user profile (you may have to enable being able to see hidden files to get to it). That is where your calibre preferences are stored under Windows and maybe one of them has got corrupted or set to a value that calibre does not like?

What about spaces?

Are you running calibre "as administrator"?

Great job. Time for another donation. This tool is indispensable for me and there has been so much improvement since the first iteration.

I'm the only user on any of my machines, and yes, I have administrative rights on each one.

I'll check out the space issue, although my usual user name is "Ricky"

Yes, but if you have UAC enabled, even an admin account runs as a standard user. So, you don't have rights to write to all locations on your file system. However, if you are specifying a folder in your User folder then you certainly should have rights to it.

Except that I don't have UAC enabled. That was the first thing I specifically disabled when I put Vista on the machines. I freaking hate UAC.

Ah... well then it can't be a permissions issue.

(Although I can't see how you can hate UAC if you've never used it.

You might want to just try the simplest path you can. Create a folder on your c drive like calibredb and point to that folder. You will certainly have access to it and it will exist.

Quick question, seems I remember when I ran the last update, I needed to uninstall the previous version.

Should I uninstall this time also before running the new version?

Thanks for you GREAT "customer service"!!!!!

You shouldn't have too, but it doesn't hurt.

Not any time soon, I'm afraid, but I'm in the middle of a refactoring of calibre which will make it even easier to add support for new file types. After that's done, all that's needed is python code to convert PDB to HTML

She might want to try Process Monitor and see what file/registry entry it is trying to access that it can't and why.

Hmm but the error is about not being able to access the database file which has nothing to do with the registry (calibre doesn't store its setting in the registry).
