    OP:
    Solved the issue.

    My solution;
    Right click Team Fortress 2 inside the Steam Library > Select Properties > Beta > Opt in for sdktools_beta

    Let it finish updating TF2. Navigate to "/steam/steamapps/common/team fortress 2/bin/hammer.exe" and enjoy.

    Mapping help belongs in the Mapping Discussion section, for future reference.

    As for your actual problem, this is most likely the result of the recent SteamPipe conversion. Here are some threads about it, hopefully you can get your SDK back up and running.

    Technically it's tech assistance, since it's effecting not only hammer but Source SDK as it's whole and Team Fortress 2.

    Thank you for those links, I'll check them out.

    All right, so... Went thru all the hassle of manually configuring Hammer according to https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Hammer_Manual_Configuration

    And no luck there either - I guess it's like what those threads have to say; Hammer does not read .vpk files. I reckon we have to wait for an update or auth. tool kit.

    Thanks again Idolon. Broken many keyboards and monitors trying to solve this mystery.
