Batch Compiler FAQ - NemPosted: May 26th, 2003 - 11:35:22 pm

When I launch Batch Compiler I get the following error message:
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click ok to terminate the application."


Batch Compiler is written in C# .NET and such as requires the .NET runtimes to run. See the downloads page for more information.


When I launch Batch Compiler I get the following error message:
"A required .DLL file, MSCOREE.DLL, was not found."


Batch Compiler is written in C# .NET and such as requires the .NET runtimes to run. See the downloads page for more information.


When I open an old preset file I get the following error message:
"Error: The data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1."


Batch Compiler v3.X.X is not backwards compatible with Batch Compiler v2.X.X. This means that old preset files will not work and you will have to recreate them.


How can I convert a preset I've saved using one specification file to a preset of another specification file?


This can be accomplished by importing the preset. To do this:

  1. From the 'Specifications' menu select the specification file you would like to convert the preset to.
  2. From the 'File' menu select 'Import Preset'.
  3. Browse to and open the preset you would like to convert from.

Sometimes it's better to just redo the problem brushes. It usually doesn't take to long and it can fix non-obvious geometry problems.

Hey I have an error that comes up when starting the map in CS 1.6

It compiles fine, but as soon as I load the map, it gets 2 bars in the loading bar and then crashes with the error:
"File Read Error".

Ive tried tweaking a few options, but nothing.

Any ideas?

The first time I install Batch Compiler, it runs fine, compiles my maps perfectly, and does so until I close it.
When I come to compile a map again I firstly get an error:
Error Writing Batch File:
C:\Program Files\Batch Compiler\compile.bat

I went into Options>Setup to see if anything was wrong, and after clicking on BCP Files I get an error telling me about JIT Debugging - I have searched the internet to find nothing to help me solve this!shrug

What happens if you delete C:\Program Files\Batch Compiler\compile.bat before compiling your map?

Same Error as Kode:

Batch Compiler Core

Error writing batch file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Batch Compiler\compile.bat

I'm running Vista Business x64. I would speculate this is a Vista problem, since apps aren't supposed to write to the program files directory. I have not confirmed, but SP1 was supposed to remove the file virtualization directory.

Running Batch Compiler As Administrator seems to fix this problem, since it gives it elevation to do whatever it needs to do.

you shouldn't have ur compile tools on your desktop anyways. move the folder to whatever drive you want. before i moved away from hl1 mapping, i had my wads folder at c:\wads, then used an include file to specify which wads to embed in the bsp. bc never was able to handle spaces in the folder name.

Seems to have a problem loading any of valve's textures. all i get is:

material "tools/toolsnodraw" not found.
Material not found!: TOOLS/TOOLSNODRAW
material "metal/metalwall032f" not found.
Material not found!: METAL/METALWALL032F
material "concrete/concretefloor031a" not found.
Material not found!: CONCRETE/CONCRETEFLOOR031A

maybe it has to do with the new format or something, who knows.

its also looking for the filesystem.dll file in the wrong place. its not in bin/orangebox/bin. seemed to work fine once i copied into that folder though, well with the exception of the missing textures.

I would LOVE to compile with all the option,but since I got my geforce 9800 gt ALOT of the options are cut,so I can't see anything,I've tried adjusting my res,but nothing still :C

Maybe it'd be easier to show you.

When choose the .map and press run an error message comes up:

Error writing batch file:
C:\Program Files\Batch Compiler\Compiler.bat


Please help.

119. rikards1234Posted: Jan 9th, 2010 - 1:28:53 pm

error writing batch

Got this error trying to run a full compile. Turns out I didn't run the program as "administrator" on win 7 64 bit. Right click your shortcut (or exe) and choose run as admin, or face palm like I did. ROFL.

Hope that helps you other Doh! Doh! Doh! people out there.
