Gmod server refuses to start
Hello, today when I booted up my server, I attempted to start up my server with this command (Like always):

c:\KKServer\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod -hostport 27015 +maxplayers 32 +map gm_construct

And for some reason, it wouldn't boot up at all. It would crash with this message in the the window:

Reading externally referenced elements is not supported.

Can anyone help me out?
What addons have you got?
I can see one error in the commandline "-hostport" should be "-port", also I think you cant specify srcds location as in your commandline.

Maybe worth trying this out with launching the server with a .bat file.

Quote:@echo off
echo Protecting srcds from crashes...
echo If you want to close srcds and this script, close the srcds window and type Y depending on your language followed by Enter.
title Watchdog
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct -port +maxplayers 32
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

If you paste that into a notepad file and save it as "start.bat" that shoudl start your server fine just put the .bat file in the same fiolder as the srcds.exe.

If that doesnt work try
