    Ive been unable to start the Source SDK in the Tools section all day, says it is unavailable right now...

    Anyone else getting this?

    I just finished a good two hour map session in the SDK, everything seemed to be fine. Try restarting steam, your computer, defrag, checking integrity of game files, etc etc?

    If all else fails, shutdown Steam and delete the "ClientRegistry.blob" in your "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam" folder. Then reboot Steam and you should see an "Updating Steam" message as it re-downloads the "ClientRegistry.blob". This fixed a similar problem I had.

    Are you using a shortcut that might be directing you to the beta sdk that has ended and would not be available anymore??

    It was a VRAD process that had crashed and wouldnt close even when Steam was restarted, doh!

    Wish steam was more helpful with more than "currently unavailable"!
