Unable to load manifest (HLMV) after steampipe conversion

My SDK was working fine untill I converted tf2 to the steampipe thing. When I tried to launch HLMV it said the configuration was missing and whatnot, I remember I heard that the directory was changed so I fixed that, and now I get this error

I asked a friend and he doesn’t even have that file anywhere in his steam folder, and he didn’t even have to change the directory manually. I’ve already tried to reinstall both tf2 and the sdk, no luck.

Here’s an edit of a post I made to help someone get their CS:S compiles to work again. It also helps to fix HLMV so that it works with the intended game (in your case, TF2).
