    You need Source SDK Base 2006 installed.

    Added by Paegus:
    ...from Steam > Tools section.

    You must also be able to run the Source SDK Base 2006 engine demo.

    If you cannot play the 2006 Lost Coast tech demo then I'm afraid your issue is solely with this 'tool'.

    If deleting both the local game content for the sdk2k6 base and the ../steam/steamapps/ACCOUNT/source sdk base 2006/ folder and restarting doesn't fix it then please contact steam support.

    If they manage to resolve the issue, please, please, please post the answer below.

    I have made a few screenshots to show where and how you can access your tools and install the required Source SDK engine.

    The Where:

    The How:

    This is all done from starting at the Steam library.

    EDIT: To clarify in case you somehow are confused as to which engine is being pointed at (the arrow obscured it, my error)
    You will need to install Source SDK 2006
    Use the search function for questions-It really works!
