[RESOLVED] srcds.exe - Entry Point Not Found
« on: October 04, 2015, 02:58:29 AM »

Hi there,

This is new, lol - I have not encountered this one before.

I installed GE:S to another server box and upon startup I get this:



I have checked in the directory, and yes engine.dll is there.

Possibly something else missing?

Cheers,

I just gave a fresh 2012r2 install a try and had no issue. My best guess is something is corrupt or your installation is incomplete. Try validating the server through SteamCMD:

Code: [Select]
app_update 310 validate

Also, are you using any additional plugins? Is this a brand new copy of GE:S or one copied from a previously configured server?

It's a fresh install, I validated it (again), still no luck, so I deleted it and downloaded the whole package again, where I'm presented with the same error:



OS: Windows 8.1 Professional x64

The DLL it speaks of is there, and is a fresh installed copy of it, so I don't know why it has an issue:



Any suggestions?.

Do I need Source Dedicated Server 2007 also installed, or just srcds directory (which I thought was SDS 07) and gesource directory.

You need steam to be installed.

Alright - I didn't think it needed it as I (believe) I ran GE:S server before without Steam installed.

You are mistaken. I run servers without the desktop steam client installed.

That's correct, I never needed Steam Client before to run either GE:S or CS:S.

I currently have:

C:/Server
   > /SourceEngine (SteamCMD Location)
      > /srcds (app 310 download, and batch file goes here)
   > /gesource (Mod folder)

Starting the mod from the batch file from inside .../srcds starts the Source Dedicated Server, and the mod folder used is set in the command-line, which is ../gesource. fairly straight forward, just having some errors getting it to start :/

I can't reproduce that exact issue on my end (a new 8.1 VM with everything in those same locations and same startup parameters). You have a unique case that's difficult for me to answer because I cannot reproduce it.

My suggestions are to try starting using with the -console option (the GUI for 2007 has always had issues in my experience) and change the forward slash to a backslash. For example:

Code: [Select]
srcds.exe -console -game ..\gesource +maxplayers 24 +map ge_archives -port 50450

Also I would recommend limiting the number of players to 16 instead of 24. 16 is already pushing it for most maps, and at this point you're not likely to have that many players anyway.

Yeah not much luck on either of those suggestions either :/

I have posted the issue to the Steam Community forums (http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/13/490123938425550188/) - though no replies as of yet.

Various Youtube videos (of similar problems ((srcds - Entry Point Not Found)) point to it being either a missing DLL, old DLL, or a DLL needs to be removed.

I'll be still working towards getting this back online :)

So after more days of trial and error - mostly error I might add, I cannot get my main server to work, I'm starting to think that something somewhere at sometime has removed a key component for anything Source Engine to run, possibly system clean up tools (ie, Reg Cleaners).

I'm wondering if upgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 will repair this, limited & expensive disk space is why I haven't jumped at the chance.

I wouldn't count on it. For one, upgrades in general can be problematic and it's always best to use a fresh install. Having a corrupted or misconfigured OS before upgrading could also have some pretty catastrophic results.

Your best bet is to try again after an actually clean install of Windows.

Hi there,

With that in mind I preformed a Restore/Refresh of Windows, went through the process of reinstalling applications again and... It works!

So after all this time, a Refresh of Windows is all that was required.

Thanks for the ongoing support and ofcorse the suggestions :D

Glad it worked out for you. Software works in mysterious ways sometimes.
