After the new Orangebox update you can't open Hammer Editor by Source SDK

ENGLISH TUTORIAL
==================
After the new Steam update in 2013 you can't open Hammer Editor for Team-Fortress 2, Day of Defeat: Source and Counter-Strike: Source by Source SDK

You need to open it in another way. Here's 10 easy steps:

1. Open your Steam Library
2. Choose tools and download Source SDK
3. After the download you open your Steam Library again ( Make sure your game is closed )
4. Choose a game you want to create a map to and right click on it and choose 'Properties' ( Only tf2, dods and css )
5. Click at the tab called 'BETAS'
6. In the dropdown list you choose 'sdktools\_beta - Includes files needed to make it...' and click 'Close' ( If you can't choose this one in the dropdown list then you might have to restart Steam or your Computer )
7. Now your game will download few MegaBytes
8. Go into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\
9. Open the game folder for the game you chose ( tf2, dods, css ) and inside that folder you open the folder called 'Bin'
10. In this folder there's a file called 'hammer.exe' and when you open this file you have to choose which game you want to create a map for ( tf2, dods, css ) and after you have clicked on the game you want the map for and have clicked 'Ok' the Hammer Editor will open and you are ready to build your map.

I recommend that you create a shortcut at your desktop to open this 'hammer.exe' file

Deutsch Tutorial
==================
Seit dem neuen Update kann man den Hammer Editor für Source SDK nicht mehr öffnen. Man muss das anders machen. Hier sind 10 leichte Schritte:

1. Öffen Deine Steam-Bibliothek
2. Wähle "Tools" und lade Source SDK herunter.
3. Nach dem Download öffnest Du Deine Steam Bibliothek nochmals ( Das Spiel muss beendet sein )
4. Wähle das Spiel, für welches Du eine neue Map kreieren willst und mache einen Rechtsklick darauf - wähle "Properties" ( nur für tf2, dods und css )
5. Klicke auf den Reiter namens "BETAS"
6. Im Dropdown-Menü kann man "sdktools_beta - Includes files needed to make it..." auswählen. ( Wenn Du das nicht auswählen kannst, dann starte Deinen Computer neu )
7. Das Spiel wird jetzt einige MB herunterladen.
8. Gehe in deinen Benutzer-Ordner C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\
9. Öffne den Spieleordner für das Spiel, welches Du ausgewählt hast ( tf2, dods, css ) und in dem Ordner öffnest Du den Ordner "Bin"
10. In diesem Ornder ist ein Dokument namens "hammer.exe" und wenn Du das öffnest, musst Du entscheiden, für welches Spiel Du eine Map erstellen willst ( tf2, dods, css ) und nachdem Du auf das Spiel geklickt hast ( für welches Du die Map erstellen möchtest - und nachdem Du auf "Ok" geklickt hast ) öffnet sich der Hammer Editor und Du kannst mit dem Erstellen der Map anfangen.

Ich empfehle, eine Verknüpfung/Shortcut auf dem Desktop anzulegen, um "hammer.exe" zu öffnen.

    WELL. I FIXED IT UP now. The reason is it's now found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\bin instead!
