Well if you are trying to compile a map, and if it is the same as normal tool, the command you will want to type in is "tool build-cache-file levels\test\<map folder>\<name of map>" then just let it run for a while and your map should be compiled and ready to go. you would type it in without the quatations

If you want a simple GUI, you can use the ToolEx plugin for HEK+. It's very simple and reliable.

Should take a while. Just leave it. But if it takes more than 30 minutes, you've got a problem.

then something is wrong...

tell us what you type in tool, and then tell us where the file is.
