    Whenever I go to start up hammer, I get an odd bug. It allows me to open up sdk, but I am unable to launch hammer, or use any other of its applications.

    Anyone else getting this or know how to solve it?

    Close the SDK.
    And verify TF2 in steam.

    Yeah, just open up TF2 first, then SDK.

    Close all open steam applications, run TF2, let it validate its files (even though it says 100% leave it) and then reopen Source SDK

    Yep that's what I had to do. I had to do it twice, too, because the first time quit prematurely with some sort of error. As it turned out, there was an update it had failed to grab.
