Server crashes at startup

I have a small problem with my Phase Four server.
I installed it correctly, the dll’s and everything, I even installed the redists but everytime I startup the server SRCDS.EXE stops responding. I’ve also tried to do -verify_all and update the server, but it still crashes.

I’m clueless atm.

I’m not sure if you use the correct way to start it up. It’s not suppose to be started through the srcds.exe by clicking at it.

Open up notepad, insert this code:



@echo off
cd c:\WHERE YOU INSTALLED IT\srcds/orangebox
echo Starting game server.
echo Beginning "Garry's Mod"
srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct +maxplayers 16 -port 27015
echo "Garry's Mod" has now started.


save as “Server Start.bat” anywhere you like and start that up.

As I said, I cannot tell if you already do it this way since it looked more like you were starting the srcds.exe itself.
