    I CAN NOT open Hammer. I have tried opening with Source SDK, opening in bin. I just can't open it. Can someone please help me?

    try deleting it and finding it again from the steam/teamfortress files. I honestly dont know what else to suggest
    maybe if you re-install steam altogether?

    Have you tried running hammer.bat from the /Team Fortress 2/bin/ folder instead of the .exe

    maybe you could try verifying the tf2 files from steam. that could also work

    Now you mentioned what the problem is I searched for hammer editor game info is missing and someone said :
    Oh! I found it! It's called GameConfig.txt. Open it up and change all of the C:\ to whatever your new drive is.

    and the guy replied underneath that it worked.

    If the problem keeps on , just google "hammer editor gameinfo txt missing" you may find something more specific that you are looking for.
