Thanks for the log file. Your configuration is wrong, the file "digiKam DBs" 
should be a folder, but now it is the database in which all 4 SQLite databases 
are located. This is theoretically possible from the table names, but not 
useful because of blocking access under SQLite. I can not say at the moment 
how this could happen. The best way is to start with a completely new 

1. Delete "digiKam DBs" and create it as a folder.
2. Delete the digiKam configuration file under "C:/Users/<USER>/AppData/Local/
3. Start digiKam, it will guide you through the initial settings.
