Do you have these files?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Don't Starve Mod Tools\mod_tools\buildtools\windows\Python27\Lib\site-packages\site.py
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Don't Starve Mod Tools\mod_tools\buildtools\windows\Python27\Lib\site.py

It's odd to me that your mods tools are installed to "C:\Program Files" instead of "C:\Program Files (x86)"

I have both those files and um I think why it not in the program files (x86) is because im on a 32 bit os

Ahhh that makes sense. I'll need to try the mod tools on a 32bit os to see if that's related or not.

Yup, I checked a 32bit version and the autocompiler worked as expected. I'm suspecting something is strange about your setup. Do have python installs elsewhere on your machine?

I tested it on 32-bit XP service pack 3. The different operating systems shouldn't affect it.

As a first try, I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the game and mod tools.

You could try installing the game/mods tools to a steam directory outside of Program Files, to something like c:\Games, so that there aren't spaces in the filepath. The error in your log where program files is split at the space is odd, and peculiar why your system is having a problem there.

I thought you could tell Steam to install something outside the typical program files directory, but that appears to only be an option when you have multiple harddrives.

Unfortunately I'm at loss for what else could be causing the problem.

ugh well thanks for trying to help sorry for takeing up your time with this

No problem. I'm sorry that we weren't able to address the problem on your machine. You could also try this from another user log on on your PC, or from a different computer if one is available.

Yup, you should be able to re-purpose these two commands for building images and animations.
