You can't use it that way. You have to start up a command prompt (Powershell for example) and put in the proper arguments.

I'll be coming up with a tutorial soon.

I just uploaded a new copy last night. Can you try it against those models?

If it gives you the same error, can you copy/paste the full command you used along with the full output? Thanks.

Can you use the -objectdir argument? If you extracted all the .pak files, it's the directory you extracted them to. I extract mine to e:\blender projects\AW, so add a -objectdir "e:\blender projects\aw" to the command when I run it. Just replace that with wherever you extracted them to.

This may be fixed. I've updated the file at the Dropbox link in the original post. Please test it out and let me know if you're still having the issue.

I believe CIG is compressing the .mtl files now, which is causing problems for the exporter. I'm not sure if it's possible to uncompress them manually prior to running the converter, but that may be a work around if so.
