I've followed Hl'evs tutorial but always seem to get stuck at

https://forum.esforces.com/threads/74988-ESF-Dedicated-Server-for-Windows

"6. Launch ESF installer. If a message pops up asking if you want to uninstall ESF first, hit No. Uncheck all the options (MP3s, Japanese Voices, Steam menu music, Desktop shortcut), they're not needed for ESF dedicated server. Install the files to HLDS\steamapps\common\Half-Life."

Ive made the E:/HLDS folder and done everything as instructed, but when I go to install ESF into the folder the "OK" button is greyed out and will not let me install to that directory. The only one it will allow me to install to is where default ESF is, is there any fix for this? Any help would be appreciated.

Wouldn't let me upload so I included a link to a screenshot.

Also, I know a fix for this can be running Half-Life just once so it creates the files, but there is no half-life application or files in the folder to run it.

It's possible that HLDS folder structure has changed. ESF installer has a requirement to be installed in a folder which containts at least one of the following: hl.exe (in case this is a game install) or hlds.exe (for server install). Can you list the contents of E:/HLDS folder?

You could've wrote in the original thread, though. Merge?

So i've fixed most of my problems by following this guide https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=340974032. It's been very helpful I have a server running now, but bascially when I try to connect it says im running the game valve, I believe because i edited these properties what would I replace this with to run ESF instead of valve?

(I had to edit those properties of the shortcut to make it run the server, otherwise it would not run)

For some reason the link isn't working but if you look at the guide i have a very similar set up regarding HLDS target properties
