    Hello, today i was going to send my map to retslag so we can test it. It was my first map actually. So i was opening hammer editor and suddenly it shows me this error : This version of %1 percent is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Please check u're computer's system information to see whether u need x84(32-bit) or x64(64-bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher. I really need help fixing that problem. I checked all updates and there were no updates and i tried to reinstall it and reset it and refresh it and all of those were no use. If anyone had that problem with sdk before please i really need help to fix that problem. Please reply to me, thank u.

    Are you running Windows 64 bit? If so, try his: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/64-bit_mode_with_Source_SDK

    1. In the Steam Games window, right-click on Half-Life 2 (or any installed Valve game you want to run) and select the Properties option.
    2. Then select Set launch options... and add the line -32bit to the edit box.
    3. Close the dialog and launch the game you just edited (ie. Half-Life 2). When it has successfully started up, close the game.

    You should now be able to run the SDK on your 64-bit OS. Note, however, that if you run any of your Valve games without the -32bit option, your SDK will go back to being incompatible and you'll need to repeat this process.

    This means that if you run a game through Hammer, you'll also need to launch that game with the -32bit command line parameter as well. The same is true running a game from a batch file, command line, etc.
