srcds - Launch Error
I have followed a tutorial found at, for anyone that also needs server administration you can go here to get help.

I have updated the hldsupdate tool and install the css dedicated server files, i double click on srcds.exe and the GUI verison wont open.
I also think i have tried it in the console verison and cmd and bat verison but im not sure if i did it correctly so maybe if someone put up a guide on how to that it might work, but im pretty sure i did it right.

I installed everything to c:\hlserver
Once everything had finished i did.

well its put into start run. and i type in
c:\hlserver\srcds.exe -game counter-strike source +maxplayers 16 +map cs_office
the gui verison doesnt open when i double click on it (this is srcds.exe by itself)
Im not sure how to use a shortcut or cmd. But ive used a bat file to attempt to open it the one that is supplied in the tutorial on this website.
Im trying to host a css dedicated server.

Youtube video of what i did:
Thanks. Kind regards sifclan.
If you open like that it will still open as GUI. You have to tell the program to open as a console

c:\hlserver\srcds.exe -game cstrike -console +maxplayers 16 +map cs_office
