It seems like me and many other people who use SRCDS have been seeing a seemingly harmless error message when they startup their servers:
Failed to load Steam ServiceServiceStart: failed to start
This appears to do nothing, except it’s a poorly crafted error message, lacking a newline character at the end, causing the next line to start at the end of this one.
I think this may be on garry’s part to fix, due to the large amount of people (from what I can tell) who have this problem. (Other games based on the source engine seem to be having this issue, so I’m not totally sure if it is fixable by garry or not.)
Pertinent server information:
- Run on Windows XP Home Edition SP3 (Yup.)
- Server version: server.dll build #109
