I had the exact same issue recently. The cause of the error was rather stupid... I downloaded the left4fix.sig.txt using the following link https://github.com/spumer/Left4Fix/b...ft4fix.sig.txt
in Google Chrome (right click -> save as). But the downloaded file was way bigger than the left4fix.sig.txt file on github. Somehow Chrome added a lot of lines. So I just opened a new file with notepad++ and manually copied the content of the left4fix.sig.txt file from github to it and saved it as left4fix.sig.txt. Then the addon was loaded properly and it was listed in "meta list" and loaded without errors.
Check that with "sm exts list".
The error message was: <FAILED> file "left4fix.ext.2.l4d2.dll": Could not read left4fix.sig.txt: A property was declared outside of a section.
left4fix 2.0.1 (left4fix.autoload and left4fix.ext.2.l4d2.dll in extensions folfer, left4fix.sig.txt in gamedata folder)
