Counter Strike Source problem: hl2.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Post by BucaneerBeer on Sat 21 Dec 2013, 18:50

Okay so let me tell you what's wrong with my css and what i did in attempt to fix it.
About three weeks ago i reinstalled my copy of windows 7 ultimate i did this because it was clogged with junk files and errors and i thought that if i reinstall it i would get a faster pc and it would be better for gaming.
when i reinstalled it i downloaded the latest drivers for my pc. And then i went to the windows.old folder wich still had some of my stuff i took out the css installation files and then partitioned the windows.old folder and deleted it.
I installed css and it worked fine i played all the time untill about two days ago i wanted to launch it and i got an error message saying:

hl2.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point SteamMasterServerUpdater could not be located in the dynamic link library steam_api.dll.

I was like how. I looked up on the internet on how to fix it and no results came up it was only similar stuff not the exact thing.
I unistalled css from my computer and went to kickass torrents to get the torrent file that's where i originally got it from,
I downloaded the file followed all the steps on how to install it did them and bam the same problem so i unistalled it once again.
So then i went to piratebay and downloaded the torrent for the file. Downloaded the file installed css looked carefully at the instructions followed them in the exact same order and bam exact same error message and i was really frustrated as i love playing it and i have mt christmas holidays now.
I went and downloaded the steam_api.dll file and it did not do anything i still got the same error message.
Anyone have any idea on how to fix this? Help

Hello,

Did you also apply the included Crack file? It's important that you apply it to the correct folder.

Yes as i said i applied everything correctly i replaced the MasterServers.vdf file in the config folder with the one that was in the crack folder and set it to read only like it asked me to.

Hello,

Did you restart your computer after you un-installed the game ? It is recommended to always re-boot after un-installing any program.

Beyond this, the only explanation I have for this is that possibly your "security software" (anti-virus/anti-malware) somehow corrupted that steam_api.dll file. Add the file location of your CS:S program folder to the "exceptions" of your AV software. Or turn that software off completely.

Re-download that file then...and see if anything changed.

But I honestly don't have any other clue.  Wat.  Let us know about your progress though !

There have been reports in the past about problems with that download. See this topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t679-counterstrike-source-problems-notice

You can try, one more time, a "clean un-install". For that purpose, I suggest you use the program "Your Un-installer Pro!", available from Games4TheWorld too (look on Piratebay for "Games4TheWorld Your Un-installer"). Install that program then.

Open the program and choose your CS:S installation. In the next window, choose "Super mode" and follow the instructions.

Re-boot the computer after that ! Then re-install CS:S again.

Other than that I can't suggest much more, I'm afraid Wat.

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that, but your problem may have to do with the topic I linked to in my previous reply - the one about the "Counter strike: problems notice". You may have to wait for a "fixed" version to be uploaded. When (or even IF) that will happen, any time soon, I cannot tell you. Since the Admin is currently busy with working on the "Download server" for The Sims (3) store items; I'm not sure when to expect a new release.

And since my copy of CS: Source is actually bought, I'm not sure what else to suggest, beyond these general tips I gave you before. 

Maybe the Admin knows another way of getting that to work though. Until then, I'm sorry I can't provide more help with that.  Wat.

Hello there,

Unfortunately I don't have many solutions for CSS either, it's a weird game.
Hmmm... when will you get your new PC? I'd love to know the result.
