I tried to convert a random sized image and failed... :(

I went back to my XP computer where I have 'DDS Converter 2.1' by Yannick 'Bluehair' Leon
copyright 2004-2005. When I ran it on a random image I'll call 'MyPic.jpg',
it told me 'Error: [MyPic.jpg] size not a power of 2'
----
To test this version of 'ddsconvert' I created 2 diretories TMP/input and TMP/output
'pTEST_1391x826.png' was my original image. (win8.1 64bit)
Using 'IrfanView' I did a mix of cropping & resizing to get the dimensions
then saving the resulting image with a filename showing the size in TMP/input.
'ddconvert' version 1dot0 _said_ it processed each file and gave an output filename
but the non-power-of-2 dds files were NOT created in TMP/output.
Example: Processed file bTEST_1024x1000.bmp -> bTEST_1024x1000.dds

Here are the results with my FAIL comments:

bTEST_128x64.bmp -> bTEST_128x64.dds
bTEST_512x512.bmp -> bTEST_512x512.dds
bTEST_1024x1000.bmp -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)
bTEST_1024x1024.bmp -> bTEST_1024x1024.dds
bTEST_1391x826.bmp -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)
gTEST_512x512.gif -> gTEST_512x512.dds
gTEST_1024x1000.gif -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)
jTEST_1024x512.jpg -> jTEST_1024x512.dds
jTEST_1391x826.jpg -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)
pTEST_1024x1024.png -> (FAIL: not a valid type)
pTEST_1391x826.png -> (FAIL: not a valid type)
tTEST_512x512.tga -> tTEST_1024x512.dds
tTEST_1024x1000.tga -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)
tTEST_1391x826.tga -> (FAIL: dimensions not power of 2)

So 'ddsconvert' will run under Win8.1 64bit but the images
must be a power-of-2 in dimensions. Maybe an error message written in?

DDS files needs to have dimensions in powers of 2, like  4, 8, 16, 32, 256, etc. Scroll down to the limitations about DDS here.

Converted files don't seem to actually save in the destination folder.

This program is registering as a trojan on MS windows 10. Just FYI in case this is new with a windows update. 
Also just trying to do a conversion from Lorkhan's lunar legacy dds files to tga but I get the error "Error with file tx_masser_full.dds" when I try to convert.

As an alternative you can use some freewares like DDS2BMP  and BMP2DDS for example. I've already used them by the way without any problem.
