srcds won't start
I am hitting my head against the wall.

Server OS: Server 2008 R2 64 bit
Processor: Intel Xeon 2.6 Ghz (running on a Dell R610)
Ram: 16 GB
Game(s): tf (Team Fortress 2)
Start Up Command: E:\HLserver\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game tf -hostport 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort
Admin Mods: No Mods.

This is a completely fresh install of both windows and TF2. I used the HLDSUpdateTool.exe to install, using -dir E:\HLServer.

There are no other servers running on this machine.

When executing the command line, via an Administrator Command Prompt, nothing happens. When I try to execute SRCDS.EXE standalone, nothing happens. When I try to create a shortcut using the full game parameters, nothing happens.

SRCDS won't start.

EDIT: I will also mention, that I have searched these forums for the past hour, making sure that my problem hasn't been asked before. There are a lot of "srcds won't start" threads, and all of them say the same thing, but none of their responses seem to work for me.
For those of you out there scratching your heads:

Just run HLDSUpdateTool.exe multiple times until there is absolutely nothing else to download. I ended up having to run it 6 times before it was finally finished.

Admins, lock this.
