"The system cannot find the file specified."

I’m trying to make a basic map in hammer just to get more familiar to the software. So I Follow the instructions of a simple youtube called “Source SDK Tutorial - First Map tutorial using Hammer” It was very helpful and I compleated my map but then it tells me to press this button or press F9. So i press F9 do the things the guy tells me and when I clicked ok This popped up:

** Executing…
** Command: Copy File
**Parameters: “C:\ProgramFiles\Steam\steamapps\oobread\garrysmod\garrysmod\maps\Starter_map_V2.bsp” “\Starter_map_V2.bsp”

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

And a thing saying do you want to continue “yes” “No”
I have no clue what I should do please help!!!

Post the full compile log…

also use http://www.interlopers.net/errors/index.php

Thats all that appeared

Oh, im pretty sure you have a invalid filename.

So do i have to set up the whole thing for Gmod again?

No, no no.

Press CTRL and P while having your map loaded in hammer. It’s probably caused by a faulty brush.

Do you mean alt P. ctrl P is print


IT said no errors when i pressed alt + P

Yes, I meant ALT+P. :obama:

Oh and, check for leaks. May also cause that to happen.
I’ve encountered this error numerous times, and 6 times out of 10, I’ve had to remake the entire map. Really annoying.

The error “The system cannot find the file specified” just means that you have some error crashing your compile, like a leak or something.

Your game config isnt set up right…
your paths to the compiling tools (vbsp, vvis, and vrad) are not set up correctly.
Try using a default game config
