For some reason, Kindle for PC 1.21 installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon, while the 1.23 update installed in C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Amazon instead *while keeping the original C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon folder and files*, and brought renderer-test.exe back with a vengeance.

Unbeknownst to me because I went to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon directory and saw that renderer-test.exe was still renamed to renderer-test.xxx, the latest eBook I purchased and downloaded was downloaded as a KFX eBook. Upon discovering this, I went searching and that's when I discovered that the 1.23 update was installed in my user directory. Weird.

Thanks for that. My finding was slightly different. Seeing these recent posts, I checked and found that everything is installed in C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Amazon so the 1.23 update added a new renderer-test.exe right there with my existing renderer-test.xxx. I wasn’t sure if I should just delete the new .exe file, so I changed it to .xxx, and since it is in same folder as .xxx, I now have a renderer-test.xxx and a renderer-test (2).xxx. I would think I could just delete one of them, but have not. Anyone?

The reason for renaming renderer-test.exe, instead of just deleting it, is to allow the possibility to rename it back if you decide to re-enable support for KFX format.

When a new version of Kindle for PC is installed it leaves behind the .xxx file from the previously installed version. There is no need to keep that file.

Thank you so much. You are the best.
The plugin worked without me having to use any outdated versions.
Now..... If only I can get the DeDRM plugin back.....
