SRCDS Steam group

can't get the srcds.exe
I can't seem to get the srcds.exe to appear when I run the HldsUpdateTool

here the tutorial and the URL I was using to get it working

Step 1. Download HLDS Update Tool:

Step 2. Finish Downloading the HLDS Update Tool.

Step 3. Go to "computer", then "program files", and open "HLServer". Right click on HldsUpdate Tool and make a go to "send to desktop": (or make a shortcut).

Step 4. Go to the HldsUpdate Tool Short cut (on your desktop) and right click it and click on properties. From here, you see the "Target" box, copy and paste
"-command update -game garrysmod -dir c:\HLServer" after the
"C:\HLServer\HldsUpdateTool.exe" (which already be there) in there and leave a space in between both of them.

I can't figure out whats happening here

Step 5. Run the HldsUpdate Tool One more time and wait till it is finished [u][u](may take 15 min to an hour to finish).

It just opened command prompt and closed down and only these files appeared
hldsupdate tool_38.mst

I had this as the target

"C:\Program Files\Valve\HLServer\HldsUpdateTool.exe" "-command update -game garrysmod -dir c:\HLServer"

Step [/u][/u]6. Go to "computer" again, and open HLServer. From here, open the new "orangebox" folder and scroll down to "scrds".

Step 6. Send "scrds" to desktop (or just make it a shortcut) and right click it and go to properties. From here, go to the "Target" box again and after "C:\HLServer\orangebox\srcds.exe", copy and paste "-game garrysmod".

Step 7. Run the "scrds" (desktop shortcut), now you have a GMOD Dedicated Server! Big Grin
