Well there is the problem AND solution

Open up notepad or wordpad

Type this:

@echo off
cls
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 srcds.com Watchdog
:srcds
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct +maxplayers 4 -secure +fps_max 600 -tickrate 33
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

Save the file as gmodserverstart.bat

Stick the .bat file in your gameserver folder.

Double click the .bat to start your server.

“echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct +maxplayers 4 -secure +fps_max 600 -tickrate 33”

In this area, you can change the starting map, the number of players, VAC on/off, max server FPS, and/or tickrate.

Hope this helped.

I’m having the same problem. Just followed the gmod dedicated server wiki to a t and the exact same error came up :frowning:

exact same problem, seems to be happening to a lot of people, I’ve installed srcds several times before with no problem, now I’m trying to install it on a dedicated server via remote desktop control and when I try to start the server that exact error happens.
Halp.

Try starting from the beginning. Follow these exactly:
