How do I update Calibre to the latest version?
#1  nsivakr 04-23-2011, 05:32 AM
Hi,

I clicked on the link next to Update Found: 0.7.57 and it comes up with a message that Calibre has been updated to version 0.7.57.

However, at the bottom (Status bar), still shows calibre version 0.7.55 created by Kovid Goyal.

Please suggest how do I update the calibre to the latest version?

Thanks

SN

HI There should be a link at the bottom right to click on that will take you to the download site.
When you get to the site close the calibre you have open before downloading

But that link, downloads the entire Calibre. This is the link, I got
http://calibre-ebook.com/download_windows

It downloads, the entire 37 MB file. Is that correct?

Yes - that is correct. However when you load the new file it keeps all of your library and other information correctly.

You need to restart your computer for it to be in effect.

No, you don't. I update all the time with no need for restarts.

Calibre does need to be fully shut down (no tray icon), or the Update install can be blocked.

Only calibre needs to be restarted, not the entire computer.
