SRCDS Steam group

srcds.exe not working.
I used to run my Garrysmod Dedicated Server just fine on my Windows 2000 machine just fine.

I stopped using it for a while, so I figured a refresh of all files wouldn't hurt it.
Guess who was wrong!

Every time I go to use the files and shortcuts (Yes I did update it all correctly) it doesn't work. So I went straight to my srcds.exe file nd attempted to execute it. It did nothing. Now, if I'm not mistaken, it should have done something. So I looked at my Task Manager, it shows up for a couple of seconds after I execute it, then goes away.

So I deleted it and got it reinstalled figuring I did something wrong.

Once again, it didn't work.

So, any tips/points/solutions/reason/explanations as to why I suddenly can't get this to work?
Alright, well usually just clicking on srcds.exe won't do anything. It is supposed to yes, but generally doesn't. May I ask what start up parameters you are using to start the server?
Everything and anything I can find that pertain to anything. I used this
srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct +maxplayers 16 -autoupdate
to start out.
Then I tried a CS:S one that I found
srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16
and it didn't do anything.
And I tried several varations inclusing just -game garrysmod or -game cstrike
And yes I do have the content for both games and yes they are pointed to the correct paths. Because, like I said, the srcds.exe will show up in my Task Manager then just go away after a couple of seconds.
I'm trying once again to just do a fresh reinstall of everything.

It may pertain that I have nothing written in my server.cfg but
rcon_password SecretPass
but I don't think that should matter, should it?

Oh, and when I use the script for restarting it automaticaly

@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 cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

it just spams the window with "Started" then "stopped" over and over and over.
