We need some  more  details- what map, when exactly error message pops-up, do you have sufficient disk drive space etc. Also debug log  can be very helpful- you can find it in My Documents\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\logs folder.

The map is one I made. I have converted other maps that I have made to 4.1 with no problems.

For some reason when I tell it to export map and go through the process to make a base or delta file

the meter shows that it is converting, but at the end of the process, I get the above message and

can not do anything after that point.

Another question I have is about the map installer for 4.1 does not work. Is it supposed to?

I have installed Steelbeasts 4.1 three times.  I have 1.38 TB free hard drive space.

Thank you.

So I'd  like to get a log at least. And, since we are talking about custom map, a copy of it would be nice to have too.

Map installer, or Map Download  Manager? If  issue  is  with Map Download Manager, then un-installing and re-installing SB will not help much.  Map Download Manager must be installed only after installation of SB, otherwise it would not work.

Reinstalled SBPROPE installed map manager last still does not work.   Thankyou

Ok... "Does not work" means that  Map downloader  application  fails to start, or something else(cannot connect to the server,  cannot find map package  etc)?

Do you use special (="non-ASCII") characters in the TER or HGT file's name?

If so, try to rename. You would then need to choose the "replace function" for old scenarios relying on these maps as these scenarios would still reference the old file names, but otherwise it should work.
