Is the hldsupdatetool.exe broken?
Hi all,

I'm installing a new copy of source dedicated server for windows from scratch (My current one has become corrupt). Problem is, the hldsupdatetool.exe won't run. The initial part went ok, it went through the first wizard. When I try to get it to download the files, it only goes through the initial wizard again. I used the command line

hldsupdatetool -command update -game hl2mp -dir d:\srcds

from the command prompt window, but it doesn't download anything, just gives the wizard. Is it broken, or am I missing something?
I used the hldsupdatetool.exe leftover that was still in my existing srcds folder, and was able to download the server files. There were also a couple other files in there with names like HldsUpdateTool_14.mst etc., so maybe that made a difference. Anyway, I'm all set, but if anyone can point out if I made a mistake, please do.
the tool you download is to install the files which will then download the server. Gaming Servers

Thanks, I know what that file is for. Perhaps I didn't explain clearly enough, but anyway, as I already said, I got an existing copy of that file from my own archives, and it ran ok, problem solved.
