I feel that my own computer is better than the host I pay to, and would rather host it myself. I used the HLDSUpdatetool to install to C:\srcds , and then opened the command line to there, running the TEST command of, hldsupdatetool -command update -game “ship” -dir C:\srcds , to install The Ship. All games have the issue described - below.
It shows in the command prompt:
Checking Bootstrapper Version …
And then - nothing more. A windows message comes up to say it has - stopped working, checking for solution, problem caused it - to stop working correctly, ect. And it never changes from this, over time.
The files in C:\srcds are Clientregistry.blob, HLDSUpdateTool.exe, HLDSUpdateTool_35.mst, hldsupdatetool_readme.txt, install.log, and unwise.exe .
Windows Vista, 64-bit, Dual-Core. (None of which ought be the issue.) .
Another tool says that the file-servers that hldsupdatetool reads from are currently down. Verification?
