There's something I've done wrong in my map, but I have no idea what it is.
it says "The system cannot find the file specified". I've tried interlopers and it tells me there's no errors.
My map name is completely normal: no caps, no space, no wierd characters. only english standard letters and _'s.
There are no advanced geometry AT ALL. I even removed all the displacements and arches.

The error comes from the system call to execute a different program. It means that the OS looked for the *.exe file, but didn't find it.

Just making sure: if you browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\ do you actually see the Team Fortress 2 folder existing?

In my experience, it usually means you have something preventing the map from compiling properly. If you had compiled a version prior to this one it would have just went to the old version rather than compiling with the error.

I'm sorry for bumping this, but I get the error again. Are there any other solutions that don't include decompiling or hours of lost work? I mean- like some technical thing I can fix or some specific problematic entity that might be causing the problem?

EDIT: I sort of fixed it: there was some too small skybox objects. The error isn't a problem for me anymore, but I'm still curious: what is causing the error?
