Could you check if the folders are read-only? That could explain the access denied error messages.

They are read only.
When I attempt to change through the properties tab it allows, but when I check again it is back to read only................?

Check that you're logged in as the administrator of the computer. I think that only administrators are allowed to change folder properties so if you're logged in on an account that doesn't have administrator privileges it will reset back. Also try setting the properties on your Orbiter folder as a whole.

You need to put the '.' at the start. Without the dot cmd is literally looking for the path "\Orbiter2016\Utils\texpack.exe", which cannot exist on any Windows system as it has no drive letter. ".\" translates to the current working directory, which is "D:\" in this case, so it'll look for "D:\Orbiter2016\Utils\texpack.exe". Like I said every single character matters.

D:\Orbiter2016\Utils\texpack.exe is where it is. (rightly or wrongly)

Message:
Code:
D:\>.\Orbiter2016\Utils\texpack.exe D:\Orbiter2016\Textures\Earth Surf -e
Access is denied.

So How hard is to make a flat/level base? I have been asked this from someone else. We want to put a level base in a mountain.

Not hard...just tedious, IMO. I've leveled the sites for Niven and Heinlein.
