    When I try and run my map (which has been running fine for the past 4 days) I get a error message which reads

    "The command failed. Windows reported the error:
    "The system cannot find the file specified.""

    Any ideas what this is or how to fix it, I have tried movie the location of my map and had no success, i have backed up my map, but will lose a few hours work if this cant be solved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I know I have gotten that error when I had a MAJOR problem in my map. I believe it was brush related.

    Sorry I'm not much more help then that, but try checking for problems if you haven't yet? Might come up.

    This is My Entire Compile Log, I did just also get a message saying 6 solids have been removed from my map because they were somehow incompatible.

    For anyone in the future finding this:

    I just had this error from trying to compile with an outdated FGD. I redownloaded booj's resource pack and all was well.
