How To fix editor/wireframe

Disclaimer

This is my Experience what happend and how i fixed it. I found no complete working Solution on Google and i want to share how i fixed it.

If you got the Error in Hammer: "missing material editor/wireframe"
There are 2 Checks/Fixes that i tried and worked...

1. Check Game Configurations

For me before i canĀ“t open Hammer because i moved the game directory and the game configuration had the old Location after i edited <\bin\GameConfig.txt>Hammer booted normally but... That happend (Step 2)

2. Check gameinfo.txt

The gameinfo.txt Is located in ex. (Counter-Strike Source\cstrike\). 
The thing is i compared the downloaded the original file and the downloaded one
the original had more information than the downloaded gameinfo.txt what i did was that \/

My Experience downloaded an online gameinfo.txt

After the end, where i looked at most of the files. I removed the downloaded gameinfo.txt and after that it works. 

3. Check if the FGD Files

picked up from other sources.
There are 3 Files that a required to have it in the Game Configuration, They Are: base.fgd, yourgame.fgd and halflife2.fgd (optional) . If they not in the Game Configuration then add them if they not the fgd files no existing in the game folder then you need to get the game data.
