I still got the same error message. Is the file name supposed to be in uppercase? I was unaware that case sensitivity mattered here...

Also, I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to command/code language: by "pass" do you just mean running it the same way I had before?

Which Windows version?
Can you private message me the file, then I will try it myself, to see if the result is different.
Letter case shouldn't be an issue on Windows.

Maybe I'm asking a stupid question, but was C:\ the current directory?
You can use the CD /D C:\ command to "go to C:\" as Norbert wrote.
And *then* run the gpl2jascpal pink.gpl command.

I apologize for my late response, I'm not always available to work on this. :P

Windows Version 6.3.9600
I tried sending the palette file but the forum told me it was an invalid filetype.

I double checked to make sure I was running the command with C:\ as the current directory and when I ran it the most recent time it gave me an error saying "[FAILED] could not create pink.pal: Permission denied!"

That's Windows 8.1.

You could put it in a ZIP file.

But there's no need for that anymore.
Just run the command as administrator.
If you don't know how, then you shouldn't be using gpl2jascpal anyway.
Problem solved. :)

I'll put future files in zips when that issue occurs. I ran the command as an administrator and it worked fine. I appreciate all the help as always. Not sure why it gave me the first error though.
