Are compilers installed correctly, i.e. on the same disk drive as WAD files? JH doesn't export disk drive letter in "wad" field of map file because of compatibility with Valve's tools.

I don't use jackhammer compiler I use compilator 3 which is external to it. It has to work because I had exactly the same before with the free version, nothing changed.

Because access rights. Looks like you don't have write permissions. Have you tried to run JACK as admin?

Try opening a backup, *.jmx.
Or you can try to restore it from the SteamCloud.
