Ummm... try the steam support forums. The fact that just says "has stopped working" isn't a great error message.

A quick search of the interwebs hasn't given very much info. But you can still try, have a search for "SDKlauncher.exe crash" or something.

Also, the uninstall/reinstall might work.

There are A LOT of problems with the Steam SDK stuff. It's so bad that I've completely stopped using it so I can't really help you.

OK, here are a few things:

You could try particpating in the current beta that is running for the new (shinier? I dunno) SDK that will be out sometime. Post if you don't know how.

Also, do you have any of the Orange box games installed? If not that could be causing problems. If that is the case try adding the the launch option -engine ep1, this might help. Maybe.

And finally it could just be that it doesn't like your computer. It seems to run OK on my laptop but given the massive number of different hardware configurations it might be something as simple (and as difficult to fx) as that. Try posting on the SDK forums, there's a link from http://developer.valvesoftware.com/

Also, SJ, you're back! And here was me considering forging a post by you by abusing the quote system... :D

OK then what you have to do is NOT participate in the beta, in fact go to the 'tools' tab then right-click on Source SDK. Got to 'Properties' at the bottom then in the window that comes up click 'set launch options'. In that box type

-engine ep1

And click ok, blah blah blah it should work from then, maybe.

Mmmmm... lovely Orange Box that works for me... Actually, I am going to go play some TF2. Then buy/cook/eat my tea.

Glad to hear it worked though. I was, kinda, just a bit, ummm guessing. But you don't need to know that.
