    I have been having problems with the source SDK lately (who hasn't)

    if i just start sdk, and then Hammer, Hammer does not load the correct directory path for tf2

    if i select "edit game configuration" i get this wonderfull error box (screen cap attached)

    so, the "edit game configuration" box pops up
    i click "edit"
    change nothing (because there is nothing wrong with the displayed directory path)
    click "ok" to exit the edit box
    click "ok" to exit "the game configuration" box
    start hammer
    every thing works fine.

    i have to do this everytime i restart SDK, and its getting annyoing

    things i have tried:
    refreshed sdk, & tf2
    uninstall sdk & reinstall


    does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

    The file you probably want to look at is in the SDK's "bin" directory called gameconfig.txt. There's one copy for the orangebox games, and another for the ep1 directory. It tells the SDK launcher (and Hammer) what configuration settings to use.

    Check that the settings for TF2 in there look correct.

    yeah, i did have to change that file around a bit because i had the "cant change to tf2 config" problem.
    however, the paths in that file are all correct.
