How to open hammer after Steampipe update?

How do I open it

After this good and bad Steampipe update you can't open hammer.

So I would ask if there is a method to make it work.

    Found one lame method...

    with HldsUpdateTool you can install a tf2 server (More information how on youtube and google.) And with that server you have all the files to tf2. So if you open source sdk and press "Edit Game configs" to your servers files (mine is installed here C:\HLserver\orangebox\tf) then you will be able to open it.

    There's a way easier way. Simply opt into the Source SDK beta that Valve released.

    Go to your Steam library and right-click Team Fortress 2. Select Properties from the drop-down that appears. Head on over to the Betas tab in the new window, and select sdktools_beta. Let Steam update the game, and head on over to C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/team fortress 2/bin/ and double-click Hammer.bat. Done. You now have a fully functioning TF2-specific Hammer. You can obviously add a shortcut in your Steam library if you feel like it.

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but would that also work for TF2's HLMV?

    Thank you based sexy dinosaur

    It says: NONE - Opt out of all beta programs

    Ya' sure?

    Are you F2P, or did you buy the game? It'd be a real dickmove by Valve, but it may be possible that that's the problem.

    HLMV is what you can use to view Half Life 2 Model Files without actually starting the game. Its useful, especially for making previews and testing animations.
