Purchased eBook [Cannot remove DRM]

Hello experts! I'm trying to remove a DRM from a book I purchased on Amazon. I have done the following:

Download and install Calibre version 3.22.1

Download and install Kindle for PC version 1.17.0

Download and install the DeDRM Tools 6.6.1

Download and install the KFX Input.zip

After I input the .azw4 file into calibre and press convert to PDF I receive an error as follows:

Please help resolve this problem.

P.S. This is a purchased book, not a rental. I have also tried the 64-bit version of calibre and saw no results. The log is attached below:



Spoiler:

Convert book 1 of 1 (Name of book removed for privacy)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Calibre2\app\pylib.zip\dateutil\parser.py:60 1: UnicodeWarning: Unicode equal comparison failed to convert both arguments to Unicode - interpreting them as being unequal

This. And assuming that's fixed, you shouldn't convert AZW4/'Print Replica' books to PDF; they already are PDFs int a Kindle wrapper. Use the KindleUnpack plugin to extract the PDF from them.

The DRM has gone. If it was still present , calibre would say so and not try to convert.

This is a calibre support forum, not a 'how to use the internet forum' - sheesh.

Scroll down to the "Getting Help with the Tools" section, read what's there, click the 'open a new issue' link - for help with using GitHub ask at GitHub.
