Angry saving books to disk instead saves to VLC

When trying to save a book to a directory on a disk its saves to VLC instead. I removed VLC and now it opens a command window with the directory I tried to save to displayed. Saving to disk used to work just fine. This is in Windows 7.

saving books to disk will save the books to disk and then open the destination folder For whatever reason the default program for opening folder on your system has been changed to VLC. Change it back to windows explorer and you will befine. Or just close te VLC window, the books will still be saved.

Angry saving to disk problem

This is an update to my original post. What I have found out is that the books are saved to the directory I want it to. But the window for the directory in NOT opened. Something else is opened, 1) VLC, if VLC is deleted 2) command window, if that is disabled something else is opened. It is almost like a right click list of default programs are started. What program is called by Calibre to open the window that is supposed to open? And is there a logging function to find out what is happening?

saving books to disk instead saves to VLC

The latest update.

I have got it stopped trying to save to VLC. Now it saves to the directory I want it to but now it has a new error.

This is it:

calibre, version 3.44.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>WindowsError</b>:[Error 1155] No application is associated with the specified file for this operation: u'C:\\Files\\Calibre-Books'

WindowsError: [Error 1155] No application is associated with the specified file for this operation: u'C:\\Files\\Calibre-Books'

Why is trying to Open 'C:\\Files\\Calibre-Books'? Why the double '\\'?

double \\ are needed internally to pass a \ as part of the string (and for the Log. do not use for the command)
it is called Escaping. \ is a escape character. to Not have it be an Escape, you need to 'Escape the next character. thus \\

Code:
C:\\Files\\Calibre-Books'
is NOT a program (it may be a Library)

the (64 bit version) Program is C:\Program Files\Calibre2\calibre.exe
