RE: Curl output file not created when used with external tool

I notice your input file is in the “PUTOR23” folder and also the trace file gets created in the “PUTOR23” folder, but the output file which failed to get created was supposed to go in the “PUTOR23\Output” folder. So first thing I would suspect is that something could be different between these two folders.

I would check to make sure that the Windows account your mapping tool runs as (and/or the account it runs external commands as, which I suppose could be different) has suitable permissions on the “PUTOR23\Output” folder.
