Cant batch render in Maya "More than one file name is not allowed"

So when i click batch render, itll say 100% complete about a second after i click it. I can render a single frame easily, but for some reason why i try to render out this 60 frame animation its not working.

I checked the logs and all it says is "More than one file name is not allowed" but the scene file and the render image names dont have spaces.

Ive been googlin around for the past 45ish minutes, cant find a single thing on it. The only results i do find seem to involve command line rendering but i dont use that. Am i supposed to use command line? I currently use Arnold. In the scene settings, everything is fine and not spaced out.

Okay am i missing something in batch render? Too batch render, dont you set the frames in which to render (mine being 1-60) then hit batch render, then it doesnt it in the background.

I have no idea what file name is not allowed, its driving me

Could you post a snapshot of your rendersettings->common gui. It may have too many fields for one snapshot so please include all the settings.

Hello Cerbyd,
I was wondering if you could share the possible fix you used to solve this problem? i'm experiencing the same for two days now and can't find the reason and solution to this.
Thank you very much,
