    I have the same issue, as do a lot of people from what I can tell. I have tried:
    - Deleting everything (Including Clientregistry.blob) from my Steam folder, except steamapps and steam.exe
    - Verifying the integrity of SDK, SDK 2006, SDK 2007
    - Redownloaded and installed The Hidden files (Beta 4b installer) as well as attempted to patch them using the beta 4b update

    I did find something interesting. I am able to join one server. It's the only server which is running the "3b" version of the game. It's always empty, sadly. This is weird because I have only downloaded the 4b version of the game.

    I had this same error, but I managed to fix it with the link on another thread. http://forum.hidden-source.com/showt...DK-2006-Update

    rehosting it right now, mirror will be added soon!

    edit: mirrored now on my server, if you want a download link send me a private message since sharing source executables is against the steam tos afaik

    It worked perfectly for me, just make sure to read the readme and close Steam when it asks to.

    I am having the same issue, I hope this helps.
    The readme cannot be downloaded due to traffic. But this is the other workaround posted there:

    Alright, like I said, if the link doesn't work follow these steps:
    Go to tools on your Steam library
    You need to uninstall both SDKs. 2006/2007
    Then install 2007 First.
    Once you do that, install 2006, let it dawdle.
    Then delete 2006 once if you did everything right, it should remain on the list, and your installation should be rolled back.

    MAKE SURE YOU DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATES.

    Note: Once the servers get updated to the new format, you need to update your client again anyway 'cause you'll get the same error.

    Farther, this fix worked for several people, you need to add the files while steam is shut down.
