    I have been trying to convert a Tga file to vtf using vmex and from from what I can find on the net i need to save the file in a specific spot and just drag onto the vmex icon. It isn't working. I have tried all the spots mentioned on the web but when I drag it onto the symbol, the command line thing comes up for about a quarter of a second then goes. Advice appreciated.

    Do you have the TGA located in a materialsrc folder before you drop it in the vmex?

    location of folder:

    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\***user name***\sourcesdk_content\tf\materialsrc

    If you don't have said folder, make one in the /tf/ folder.

    You could manually run it from a prompt, then it will show the error without the window dissapearing.

    or make a .bat file, and add a pause at the end.
