SRCDS Steam group

Unable to load steam library
I am getting the following message when attempting to run CSGO and CSS servers when I start them:

"Unable to load steam support library, This server will operate in LAN mode only".

I am using Windows Server 2008 and enabled Windows Firewall. I have allowed both SRCDS programs through without specifiying the ports, but allowing the program itself. Which should not be a problem as I have done this before, and have successfully installed Filezilla Server, and I can connect with my Filezilla client to the server no problem. However, I am continuing to get this message.

Here is what I have done to try and rectify:

1) Redownload hldsupdatetool (for css) and SteamCMD (for csgo) and fresh installations
2) Added sv_lan 0 in my config file
3) Disabled windows firewall completely

Here is the command line Im using through a batch file for CSS:

@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 -port 27025 +maxplayers 24
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

The servers are running on a rented dedicated machine so the Steam client is not installed on there of course

I have rented a dedi machine from the host in the past and have had no problem until now.
Ok this has been fixed but I cant explain how. I installed Steam on the dedicated machine. Didnt run Steam, but since then the servers are now appearing!
