Call ebook-edit from command line throws error in all 4.x versions

Never using GUI, all work with Calibre done from command line.
Call to ebook-edit from command line worked OK for me in 3.34.
Today upgraded to 4.19 and ran into the error:
"Python function terminated unexpectedly [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
u'C:\\Program Files\\Calibre2\\app\\src\\pyj\\editor.pyi"
Checked 4.0, 4.15 - same error.
Is there a way to run ebook editor from command line?

Works fine for me. That error indicates you have most likely set CALIBRE_DEVELOP_FROM environment variable. Unset it and you should be fine.

You're right, mea culpa. Now 4.19 OK with ebook-edit.

KISS principle + Occam's razor.
All i need from Calibre I perform via batch files in conjunction with my Python code. Also, I don't want to put any stuff into Calibre library.

And for most people, those would be exactly why they use calibre.

If you were using the GUI, you would not be asking for help because the GUI is MUCH easier to use the the command line. So your KISS is not working because you are doing it backwards. Use the GUI if you wand KISS. If you don't then do it your more difficult way.

Also, using the GUI makes it easier to find books, change metadata, edit them, store them, and easier to do all the things you are trying to do from the CLI. You are not doing anything easier. You are doing everything much more difficult.

And if you want to strip the DRM, good luck with that from the CLI.

One more thing that's much easier from the GUI is side loading. Side loading doesn't work from the CLI.
