Found the issue, use the batch file from combining the streets, and edit it for the contours.  It works! 

The only issue is that it has a 5gm -1mb▒ limit.  So, break up the files into parts and then merge each one, to later combine together.  Which I am finding out QGIS has a limit also.  Has anyone ran into this issue?

Yes, I did find the issue,

 1. Download the NSIS compiler 3.01-rc-1 (earlier versions have the error)
 2. Turn off all virus scanners (I also disconnected from the net.)

I also found that it did not register correctly for mapshare (Basecamp), so I am in the process of trying to duplicate the installation (registry entry's) that JaVaWa MapConverter uses when it converts and installs the maps.


The batch file is working thru the file structure for each shape file, but no merged shape file is being created.  See attachments as to the file structure and the running of the batch file from the cmd line.

Here is the batch file

set contourfolder="E:\Garmin\California_Topo\Downloads\"
cd %contourfolder%
for /r %%f in (*.shp) do (
if not exist %contourfolder%\mergedcontours.shp (
"C:\Program Files (x86)\FWTools2.4.7\bin\ogr2ogr" -f "esri shapefile" %contourfolder%\mergedcontours.shp %%f ) else (
"C:\Program Files (x86)\FWTools2.4.7\bin\ogr2ogr" -f "esri shapefile" -update -append %contourfolder%\mergedcontours.shp %%f -nln Mergedcontours )

I have downloaded the new template and edited the info including converting and flipping my 4100 family id, and got an error just like below.  I then copied the files from the release folder to E:\Maptemp folder and still received the same error.

   Processing script file: "E:\Maptemp\map_install_x64-x86.nsi"
   Invalid command: ´╗┐;--------------------------------
   Error in script "E:\Maptemp\map_install_x64-x86.nsi" on line 1 -- aborting creation process

To me line 1 is a comment line, but somehow it is not reading it like one.  I am using the most current version of the nsi file and version 2.3 of the Makensisw compiler.  What am I doing wrong?

I am running Windows 10, and the first line is ;------------------------

I tried deleting the first line and is still gave me this error

   Processing script file: "E:\Maptemp\map_install_x64-x86.nsi"

Yes, the path pointed towards fwtools, and it is placed in the dem folder. 
I watched it thru the cmd window, it looked like the switches had issues and each time it went to process a new file it would give me the "help" for using the switches, then go on the the next file. 

Well I found a piece of shareware to do it in windows 10.  GeoMerge

I am trying to merge the shp files for contour lines using FWTools2.4.7 in Windows 10.  I have only placed 2 shape file directories in the "dem" folder, and after running the bat file, nothing.

Is there an issue with Win10 and FWTools, or is there a work-around for merging?
