Problems with Windows Bookshelf app


The following issues are likely caused when some folders are created with insufficient permissions:

  • The app doesn't allow you to login, the login screen never shows.
  • The app crashes.
  • The app doesn't allow you to download any content.
  • The app doesn't sync you LearningField groups or content


Please try the following steps:

  1. Go to folder 'Documents'
  2. Rename the 'My Books' folder to 'My Books old' or delete the folder (you might need admin access to do that)
  3. In the Documents folder create a new folder 'My Books'
  4. Open the newly created 'My Books' folder and in it create a new folder 'VitalSource Bookshelf'
  5. Open the VitalSource Bookshelf folder and in it create two more folders 'VitalBook Library' and 'User Data'
