[resolved] Error when installing CounterStrike:Source on none OS hard drive
I have installed hldsupdatetool and changed the dir to a second drive, not the OS drive, the reason being it's a faster Solid State Drive

Yes I know CSS does not need a SDD but I am planning on putting more games on my server like Garry's Mod witch I found to takes a lot of hard drive usage/speed

I install on the OS drive it works just fine. Once I attempt to install and run from the second SDD. I get this error:

srcds.exe - Entry Point Not Found
"The prcedure entry point ?ser@CThreadLocalBase@@QAEXPAX@Z could
not be located in the dynamic link library tier0.dll."

then I hit ok and...

"Launcher error failed to load launcher DLL:
this specified could not be found"

Here are my server specs:
Windows Server 2003 x64bit, 2.8Ghz i7 cpu, 4GB ram

CMD line:
G:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map cs_office -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate

No Mods, just basic download and the following server.cfg file:
// server name
hostname "Counter-Strike Server"

// rcon passsword
rcon_password "****"

// server cvars
mp_friendlyfire 0

This is a launching error, not a connection error but here this anyway

Thanks for the help guys!

maybe you should try to do this command on the new directory:
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir . -verify_all

From my own experience, both Windows & Linux versions of SRCDS, are actually "portable" (or "self-contained").

Back to the Windows version, after the 1st time I "installed" SRCDS with the hldsupdatetool.exe from (link), I just made a backup of the "extracted" hldsupdatetool.exe, and uninstalled the SRCDS.

For each game, I just make a folder likes "TF2_01", or "CSS_01", then put the hldsupdatetool.exe in it, and install by running the update command as usual.

So for your need, just nevermind the installation on your OS drive, and on your SDD, do my suggestion in the above (just copy that hldsupdatetool.exe from your OS drive), and see if that works for you.

Or you can just copy the entire folder of the installed CS:S, from your OS drive, to the SSD, so you don't have to download the stuffs again. Then for the SSD one, delete the InstallRecord.blob & ClientRegistry.blob, and run the update command again.

(I don't know what the ClientRegistry.blob is for. I don't think it is for SRCDS. Just let the update command to recreate it anyway... [Image: chicken.gif])

Hope that helps.

Just curious, since you mentioned that you might also install GMod on the SSD, how big is your SSD?

the blobs keep track of what files and such. Clearing the blobs and re-installing to an area will force a check on all files. Updating with -verify_all also works Smile

Please do not PM me for server related help

I have fixed my Problem!
I had discovered that I needed to change the name of hldsupdatetool.exe because is was not able to update thus why Cs:s never launched...

By simply changing the name of hldsupdatetool.exe example: hldsupdatetool.exe to hldsupdatetoolX.exe. this seems to bypass a another error that we have found to be the root of my problems... I don't have the error code on hand, but it was around the lines of that it could not update.
Here is the Link that I found the fix.

To 3choE
That is very intelligent workaround it shows that you have way more experience then me. I see how that would work considering that you would just need the hldsupdatetool to retrieve the files from the steam servers
This is very useful once I start to split up games across other drives.
My SSD is a corseair P128 128GB

Thank you all for your feed back

I see. Thanks.

I was pretty much repeating what I learned from the others.

As SRCDS is "portable", for the lazy people (like me), we can just make a 1:1 backup of the working copy.

Another thing to point out though, that Win 2003 doesn't have TRIM support.
