Dedicated Server Start Error

Hi Facepunch!

I decided to try and make a dedicated server. All has been going well, following the Gmod wiki Windows Dedicated Server Setup Guide.

My problem is that when I get to the Starting srdcs section I copy the text to make the batch file the, run it, and I get this error:

srcds.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point SteamAPI_UseBreakpadCrashHandler could not be located in the dynamic link library steam_api.dll

Now I have no idea what that means or what to do. I HAVE tried googling it without much luck, Ill continue to search but if you have any ideas at all please post!

System Specs:
AMD Anthlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ 2.10 GHz
4.00 Gb DDR2 RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT 1 GB
275 Gb HD

Can somebody please respond? I’m the co-owner of what will be our server, and we’ve gotten almost everything set up but the actual server itself, due to this one error.

um… Try deleting the bin folder inside the orangebox folder then re-update server to replace files

We’ve already re-installed the entire thing, but ok


No, it didn’t work.

Sad to say that did not work.
