Problem with Windows installer

Following occured:

WindowsError: [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: 'C:\\Users\\7\\Calibre Library\\metadata.db'
Had to make directory elsewhere before it would work. Unsure as to reason. Fresh install on Vista machine.
Preferences also needed to be told about new directory (was found to be blank after 'cannot find database' error when went to download news).
Ran it again, forgotten about directory location. Given up for tonight!

Sounds like you have somehow managed to get multiple instances of calibre running. reboot and delete the metadata.db file and you should be fine.

Try lauching it from the command prompt as

calibre --with-library c:\users\7\library

(make sure c:\users\7\library exists and is empty)

Maybe it can't handle directories named 7? (No, I can't rename it: it's not my machine.)

That's just weird. The error is saying that a table already exists, I really don't see how that could happen when launching a single instance from the command line.

I dont see why 7 should cause a problem either, but maybe you can use a location outside c:\Users?

D:\Calibre\ worked.
No idea why C:\Users\7\library didn't. Oh well.
