Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I'm using Maperitive through Parallels Desktop. When I want to export the map into a SVG file, the export fails :

> export-svg compatibility=illustrator Preparing the SVG... Access to the path 'C:\Windows\output' is denied.

Do you know what can I do against this problem ? How can I redefine the path ?

Thanks a lot

I don't know about Parallels Desktop, but it looks like Maperitive is running in C:\Windows as the default working directory, and that is a protected directory under Windows. export-svg command generates SVG files inside output directory of the current working dir.

I suggest using the change-dir command to move to somewhere else or specifying the output file explicitly int the export-svg command.
