Go to Start > Run > cmd > cd\ > cd hlds and run the hldsupdatetool.exe. To install counter-strike 1.6 server type hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game cstrike -dir c:/hlds
and it will download the files to run a counter-strike 1.6 server. To see a list of game use the hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game list .
