The readme says:

Readme Wrote:Half-Life Dedicated Server (Steam) Update Tool

HldsUpdateTool is an application that will update an existing Half-Life Dedicated Server installation to the latest version or will download the latest version (from scratch) if an existing version is not found. To save time/bandwidth downloading files, it's better to install HldsUpdateTool into the root folder of an existing Half-Life Dedicated Server installation.


1) Creating an account

It is no longer necessary to have a Steam account to use this tool.

2) Getting the latest version of the Dedicated Server

To download the latest version of the dedicated server to your machine:

a) Open a command prompt.

b) Change to the directory where the HLDS Update Tool is installed.

c) Run the HLDS Update Tool with the "update" command:

>HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update -game <game> -dir <installdir>

<game> "cstrike", "dmc", "dod", "ricochet", "tfc", "valve", "Counter-Strike Source", or "hl2mp"

<installdir> is the path where you want the files installed
e.g. . (for the current directory) or c:\hlserver

>HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update -game cstrike -dir .


>HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update -game cstrike -dir c:\hlserver

(NOTE: that will be ./steam instead of HldsUpdateTool.exe for Linux users)

d) Steam remembers the options you use, so when you need to update next time you only need to run:

>HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update <game>

e) You can also install multiple copies of the server by specifying a different <installdir>.

f) Half-Life mods (eg cstrike, dod) and Source mods (eg hl2mp) must be installed to separate directories

3) Updating your Dedicated Server

If your dedicated server becomes out-of-date you will see the following message in your server console and in the server log:

"Your server needs to be restarted in order to receive the latest update."

To update, stop your dedicated server and run the update commands described in Section 2 (above).

4) Help

To see this info and info about other options of the tool, run it with "-?" and it will print them on the screen.

About Steam
Steam is a broadband business platform for direct software delivery and content management. At its core, Steam is a distributed file system and shared set of technology components that can be implemented into any software application.

Valve respects the privacy of its users. The details of our privacy policy can be viewed at:

1) Q: No one is connecting to my server/I get errors when I try to connect to my server.

A: Run the HLDS Update Tool with the "update" command to make sure you have the most recent version.

2) Q: When I first run the HldsUpdateTool I see a message about "Could not create file: Permission denied". What's wrong?

A: The HldsUpdateTool has the ability to auto-update itself, but to do this it must be able to overwrite itself. Make sure the Windows user you're logged-in as has permission to overwrite the "HldsUpdateTool" executable.

3) Q: Where can I get help?

A: Join the Steampowered forums or one of the Valve Server Admin Mailing lists:
Delete the orangebox/bin/ folder and then update your server.

hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir C:\srcds

Replace any incorrect values with your own.
