CS:GO SDK not launching
I'm having trouble starting the SDK, Source SDK works fine, but with CS:GO SDK it's just doing the "first time setup" for maybe half a sec, then nothing happens. I copied two dll's that were missing over from the CS:GO folder. Running W7 with updated drivers etc. Any ideas?

Edit / Solution:

And, I solved this for myself. CS:GO install was in a different directory, not the Steam default Library, but a new one on another drive. If you choose to install CS:GO outside of the default library, you have to specify when installing the CS:GO SDK, on that same drive, or it won't install dxsetup, or launch correctly.

At least this is what I encountered, and it fixed my issue.

Original:

I have the same problem. Thought it may be due to Steam client beta, so I opted out, and it didn't resolve it. The exact message is about tier0.dll, which oddly has caused trouble with mdldecompiler for the SDK previously.

Error received is:

The program can't start because tier0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
