I'm assuming you got that by running it from the GUI.

Could you try to use the command line paramters again to reproduce it. The command line should offer more information about what is wrong.

Yes I got that from the gui.  here's the batch file's output

In your batch file you should not have new lines for the statements. That's why it is trying to execute each line as its own program.

The batch file should have

C:\Users\3DBoxx\Desktop\TerrariaMapTool2>terrariamaptool.exe -terraria "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\terraria" -world "C:\Users\3DBoxx\Documents\My Games\Terraria\Worlds\world1.wld" -output "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\terraria\Content\Map" -blocksize 16,16 -layer drawwalls,drawbackgroundwater,drawforegroundwater,drawbackgroundtiles,drawforegroundtiles -zoomlevels 0.03125,0.0625,0.125,0.25,0.5,1 -mapdata

all on a single line.

That aside, I uploaded another version. Small change that should hopefully force the use of DirectX 9.

Looks like its working across all my machines now using both the batch file and the gui.  Thanks for taking the time to fix this so quickly!
