I use POV-RAY as it is supports rending of 3D model done on ZW3D 2014. I have
been using it and I could render the 3D models without any problem. But of late,
I do not know why, when ever I try to render using POV ray, an error message
appears stating"Possible Parse Error: Cannot find file
'C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\ZW3D 2014 Eng (x64)\MAP003.bmp', even after
trying to append file type extension.
Possible Parse Error: Cannot find image file. ". I have reinstalled POV ray, I
reinstalled ZW3D, but to no avail.
Please let me know, how to rectify this problem.

First thing jumping to my eyes: space in directory path.
Second thing: parenthesis in directoty path.
And then colon in pathname.

Did you add successfully with -L option that directory in the path to 
search ?
Look at the message tab at the start of the rendering, it lists the 
library paths.

And what is the current setting of script I/O restriction (in Option 
sub-menu, it is both about script and I/O, not I/O of scripts) ?

Have you checked whether this file actually exists?
Possibly there is a mixup of accounts, e.g. if data for ZW3D
was installed for different user than Admin.

To tell you the truth. I do not know anything about coding. There is a button in
ZZW3D called render, when I press that, POVray would open and a rendered image
would be created.

No it has been installed in the correct account. some parts still get rendered.
But some parts don't

No, apparently MAP003.bmp doesn't exist.

That would indicate a problem on the ZW3D side: It generates a scene
file that tells POV-Ray to load a file named MAP003.bmp (presumably a
texture image of sorts), but fails to provide that MAP003.bmp.

So given that ZW3D is a commercial product, and the problem seems to be
on the ZW3D side, I definitely recommend contacting their customer
support on this issue.
