Please Update your Server Problem
I've updated my L4d2 dedicated server again and again. When I launch it it activates then it says please update and restart.. I've done updates many times in the past with no problems at all. Need help....
just a FYI follow-up to the above....

I have not ran my l4D ond L4D2 servers for several months. So i expected to to have to update both. I'm having the problem with only the L4D2 Server. I did not have to update the L4d server and it still launches and i can connect to it just as I did several months ago..So, I must be having some issues with that new STEAMCMD or STEAMPIPE.thinggy.
How do i use Steamcmd or Steampipe to run my L4d2 server. Help Needeed....

I had a similar problem just today.

I booted up the game before letting my Steam update, which then kicked me out after the cutscenes played. So, I suggest letting your Steam update and wait until it's finished - then maybe it'll let you play.

You'll have to reinstall your server completely using SteamCMD.

Ok Thank.s for the hekp but I'm still not quite understanding what's going on here.
Firist I have the SeaamCmd app in a folder named "s_clould. When I launch it it tells me that I need to have steam online. I'm online with steam because I'm writting the to this forum at the same time. So what's the problem now> I'm logged into my regular steam account. I tried to follow the link or the steam tutorial but I still get nowhere. Can someone please tell me in a Step by Step way just how to get my L4d2 server updated? Please Help. Someone sugested that I have to start with a freash L4d2 server install. Is that correct of do I just need the Steamcmd dtuff to update?

You have to start with a fresh install.

Try these commands in StamCMD:
login anonymous force_install_dir <where you want it> app_update 222860 validate
