    Or at least this worked for me.

    1) Install Source SDK. I actually don't know if this is a required step. It sounds strange, but trust me

    2) Go to your Team Fortress 2 folder (or whatever game). It's in common, not under your username, I believe.

    3) Go to bin

    4) There are Hammer, Faceposer, etc. applications in there. Run them

    I haven't tested this with other games yet.

    Wait, is this old news? I hear of people getting problems running the .bat. There was another thread below me that explained something, so I thought that might be the latest...

    That's not a fix, that's just where the SDK for TF2 is now. Everyone who plays the game has it whether they want it or not. The SDK "tool" is only for older games and mods now and is not necessary for TF2.

    It's only been like two weeks since it happened. The steampipe conversion was at the end of april, then there was a few days with nothing, then a little over a week with a tf2 beta that gave the tools, and then finally where we are now.
