    It's been awhile since I tried compiling a map but here's what I can offer: Does the location you are compiling to already exist as a folder? If it already exists does windows know the compiler has write permission for that folder(example using the run as administrator option when starting the compiler?  I've done a google search for 'hammer map compile cannot find file error' and there are several others also having this issue. You can copy and paste that search and see if there is any advice in the reply's to them that might help. It's not a quick or direct answer but some times you have to dig around many places to piece together the answer.
