Failed to create file when file exists error
This isn't really a problem I'm having as I know how to avoid it, but I was just curious if anyone would have an answer as to why this happens.

I have the hldsupdatetool.exe and a new empty folder called Server in the directory C:\GMod\. I wish to install the server into the folder called Server in that directory. (I need to make the folder beforehand because hldsupdatetool doesn't seem to like it not already existing?)

Anyway, this is the command I first use:
hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod -dir C:\GMod\Server\

This results in the error from hldsupdatetool that it cannot create a file when a file exists or something to that effect. However, if I run THIS line:
hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod -dir C:\GMod\Server

It installs fine. The only change was the removal of a '\' after Server at the end. Also, if I attempted to initially install the hldsupdatetool to C:\GMod\, it gave the error that the installer or program was already running and needed to be shut down first, so it exits the installer. It certainly was not running, though, as it wasn't installed yet. However, if it let it install to the default directory, it installs fine.
