What happens exactly when you try and run it?

I click on hammer.exe in the SFM bin folder, and it won't start up.

you mean nothing happens? no error or anything?

Nothing happens. No errors, nothing.

Try running it as administrator, try running it in xp compatibility mode, install the Source SDK's and make sure the game is set to the Orange Box (not sure if this does anything but it can't hurt) or if it's already installed try resetting the configuration: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Reset_the_Source_SDK_Game_Configuration

running into same problem.. can't even launch the SFM SDK or Hammer.exe. SFM runs fine though.

Hammer's been doing all kinds of weird things all weekend. I think it has to do with the TF2 update.

I FOUND THE SOLUTION.

Somehow somewhere GameConfig.txt has been deleted after update.

You have to put this file in SFM bin directory where hammer sits

"Configs"
{
"Games"
{
"usermod"
{
"GameDir" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\usermod"
"Hammer"
{
"GameData0" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\bin\tf.fgd"
"TextureFormat" "5"
"MapFormat" "4"
"DefaultTextureScale" "0.250000"
"DefaultLightmapScale" "16"
"GameExe" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\sfm.exe"
"DefaultSolidEntity" "func_detail"
"DefaultPointEntity" "info_player_teamspawn"
"BSP" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\bin\vbsp.exe"
"Vis" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\bin\vvis.exe"
"Light" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\bin\vrad.exe"
"GameExeDir" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game"
"MapDir" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\content\usermod\mapsrc"
"BSPDir" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\usermod\maps"
"PrefabDir" "YOUR STEAM FOLDER\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\bin\Prefabs"
"CordonTexture" "tools\toolsskybox"
MaterialExcludeCount" "0"
}
}
}
"SDKVersion" "5"
}

Obviously you have to replace "YOUR STEAM FOLDER" with full path, including drive, where your steam is installed, for example C:\Program Files\Steam\etc etc
