I want to make TF2 anims but SFM isn't working

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

I want to try making weapon anims or taunts for TF2 but whenever I launch SFM, I have an error that says "Unable to load ifm.dll".
I have tried:
  • Repairing vcredist using the setup in the _CommonRedist Folder
  • Resetting game configurations
  • Deleting game configurations
  • Resetting game configurations and then rebooting my PC
  • Checking if any of the files were blocked by my anti-viruses (there were no blocked files)
  • Deleting ingamedialogconfig.vdf and then verifying the game files
  • Uninstalling SFM and then deleting the remaining files, and then reinstalling
  • Running SFM as administrator
  • Resetting game configurations and rebooting after the reinstall
  • Checking if my PC can run SFM (it can)
Also if this is the wrong place to ask for a solution for this please tell me.
