srcds not starting

So I followed all the steps on the Wiki for my server and once I thought I was done I opened srcds and nothing happened. I tried opening the on in srcds/orangebox/srcds.exe and srcds/srcds.exe and all to no avail. What am I doing wrong? I have a feeling that’s not how I start the server, but the wiki just kinda stops at crash recovery.

Are you opening srcds.exe from the command line with all the switches you need?

No I am not. And what switches?

Ok, I tried again with the switches and I got an error saying the launcher DLL was not found.

You are using the console version of srcds found at http://www.srcds.com/ right?
