Calibre for Windows

Is it possible to install Calibre for Windows so that all users have access to the installed library of books?

. put the calibre library outside of a user area e.g. at c:/calibre LIbrary and all users will have access

. the program itself installs to program files, which is shared by all users

. by default , each user will still have their own interface preferences still as the config folder is in a hidden user specific folder. ; in app data roaming
probably that is also movable to a common area without any problems but seek a 2nd option if it matters

just put the library in a common area. But note that multiple users should not access the library at the same time. If you want to do that, use the calibre content server.

There is also Portable version of Calibre that looks for the library in its own folder. You can even carry it between computers using portable disk or USB memory stick.
