Default Python26.dll

I'm running Windows Vista on an Acer Notepad and use Calibre to manage my ebooks and upload them to my Sony reader.
Last night I did an update to Calibre which appeared to install over the existing program on my computer. When I tried to open Calibre I got an error message saying that thee was a conflict with python26.dll not supported by the current Python program (or something very close to that).
I uninstalled the new program and reinstalled the previous version, a couple of times, but I still get the same error message and Calibre simply will not open.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe you can ask for help on the Calibre forum, since it is very specialized software.

Have you tried restoring the computer to a time before you installed the update?

I don't think it's a Calibre problem. I finally found the install files on a memory stick for an older version and it installed and works just fine. I'll try the Calibre forum though because I'd really like to have the newer version.
Thanks for the reply.
