Compiling problem. "System cannot find the file specified".

I try to compile my Quake level and this happens:

Copying Files...
The system cannot find the file specified.
Converting map...
--------------QBSP--------------
---- qbsp / ericw-tools v0.18.1 ----
Input file: Another.map
Output file: Test.bsp

---- LoadMapFile ----
************ ERROR ************
Failed to open Another.map: No such file or directory
--------------VIS---------------
---- vis / ericw-tools v0.18.1 ----
usage: vis [-threads #] [-level 0-4] [-fast] [-v|-vv] [-credits] bspfile
-------------LIGHT--------------
---- light / ericw-tools v0.18.1 ----
usage: light [options] mapname.bsp

Performance options:
  -threads n          set the number of threads
  -extra              2x supersampling
  -extra4             4x supersampling, slowest, use for final compile
  -gate n             cutoff lights at this brightness level
  -sunsamples n       set samples for _sunlight2, default 64
  -surflight_subdivide  surface light subdivision size

Output format options:
  -lit                write .lit file
  -onlyents           only update entities

Postprocessing options:
  -soft [n]           blurs the lightmap, n=blur radius in samples

Debug modes:
  -dirtdebug          only save the AO values to the lightmap
  -phongdebug         only save the normals to the lightmap
  -bouncedebug        only save bounced lighting to the lightmap
  -surflight_dump     dump surface lights to a .map file
  -novisapprox        disable approximate visibility culling of lights

Experimental options:
  -lit2               write .lit2 file
  -lmscale n          change lightmap scale, vanilla engines only allow 16
  -lux                write .lux file
  -bspxlit            writes rgb data into the bsp itself
  -bspx               writes both rgb and directions data into the bsp itself
  -novanilla          implies -bspxlit. don't write vanilla lighting

Unless you provide it with complete file path, it's looking for the map in the current working directory. Change directory / copy the map file / use a GUI.

That error always came up at the end of the compile, on my new large map. Never figured it out, and it doesn't seem to matter.
