One of the things I recently did was install Linux on a tiny 32GB Samsung Fit flash drive. Very easy way to do multiboot. Use it primarily for web browsing and Calibre at the moment.

It would have been once upon a time -- I added the SetDllDirectory code only after a calibre user was bitten by the dll on path thing

That's actually a very good idea - I might look into this, to run a distro in persistent mode.

So - according to @kovidgoyal's suggestion that there might be malware on my Yoga, I clean installed Windows. Calibre still didn't work, exact same issue.

But here's the surprising thing. I downloaded the portable version of Calibre, installed it to a separate folder on my C: drive, and ran it. Guess what? It works!

This makes me inclined to believe that it might be a permissions-based issue (as to what DaltonST thinks), rather than a security issue. Mmwell, who knows

This being said, I've solved my issue of Calibre - if there's anyone else with a Lenovo Yoga 330 11-IGM (apparently called the Lenovo Flex 11 in the US), this may be the only solution for now

✔️

If you feel inclined, try installing the 32bit version, there have been a few instances of 64bit failing to install, but the 32bit version installed ok. I've no idea why - maybe permissions, no evidence of hardware dependency, and it happened on Windows 7. There seems to be some sort of rabbit-hole in the so-called Trusted Installer

The major advantage of installed calibre 32bit over portable calibre (which is the same 32 bit version) is that you can keep your library(ies) wherever you want and have per user configurations.

It's likely that whatever is interfering with the SSL Dll is only hooking 64bit dlls not 32bit ones.
