Just downloaded the latest version from the link, and it appears that the KindleUnpack_ReadMe.htm needs to be updated as far as the Python version goes.

From the KindleUnpack_ReadMe.htm file:
The KindleUnpack program requires Python 2.6 or 2.7 to function properly.

I suggest you post this as an issue on the Github.

What is the difference between books with and without apnx?
I thought that all ebooks that have a paper version would have apnx, but this does not seem to be the case.

The difference is that eBooks without an apnx file don't have page numbers on supported Kindles.

Sorry, I didn't ask the question well.
Why are some books with apnx and some without?
I thought all ebooks that had a paper version present had apnx, but that does not seem to be the case.

Thanks in advance.

It is generally up to the publisher to provide the markup in the source file for the Kindle edition that indicates what content corresponds to each printed page in one specific print edition of the book.

KindleUnpack only uses an apnx file if one is given to it by the user. Whether or not a particular book has an apnx file is not really relevant to KindleUnpack. In other words... what's the KindleUnpack question/issue?

You still haven't provided enough information to know what this has to do with kindleunpack.

A dual mobi might or might not have apnx like information for kindleunpack to split out.

As DiapDealer wrote you have to supply an apnx file for kindleunpack to make an EPUB containing page-map.xml from KF7/mobi KF8/azw3.

For books delivered by amazon, there may or may not be an apnx file to deliver and even if there is amazon server glitchyness may cause it to not be delivered.

I have seen books where the HTML has no pagination information but an apnx file was delivered and books with pagination information but no apnx file delivered and page numbers not touted on the ebook product page. (The product page listing is not completely reliable regarding page numbers and x-ray even taking into account server glitchyness.)

Page numbers matching paper are only really relevant for text books and reference. Pointless for most fiction.
Most Kindle fiction I've bought has no apnx, even though almost all of it has paper versions.

Thanks for the various responses.
I understand that the apnx distributed by amazon is from the publisher, but I don't know if it will be distributed or not or any details.
I think I understand to some extent.

What about practical books?
As for fiction, I've been looking into it myself. I also checked and found that there are a few cases where "JapaneseLightNovel" comes with apnx.

This does not seem to be a KindleUnpack topic. Please take this conversation to an appropriate thread (or start a new one.). Thank you.
