The following is a general guide to getting HL2 compiling under VS 2003.


  • Open Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003.
  • Choose Open Project from the File menu.
  • Navigate to the directory where you installed the source code. In our example, it would be C:\MyMod\Src.
  • Open the game_sdk.sln file.
  • Choose Rebuild Solution from the Build menu.
  • Wait for the source code to build. You should now have two DLLs in your C:\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\MyMod\bin folder (depending on where your Steam is installed and what name you entered for your mod in the Create a Mod dialog). One is called client.dll and the other is called server.dll.
