I got an error in my console could not opet halflife.wad
but when I look in my cstrike folder, I see that that wad is there
and I got like 5 maps in my map cycle wich were played for like 4 days, and servers crashed because of that error.

Thanks

Follow These:
1. Make Sure file is not Read Only
2. Replace it from other downloadable sources.

Also One more thing Here:

Solution:
This is a very common problem with a pretty easy solution. To stop the SERVER from crashing, simply search the name of the wad on google. e.g de_vegas.wad, it will come up and you need to download it. Now just extract the .wad file to the base MOD folder.
E.G HLSERVER/Your account/Your Mod. Now your server will not crash.

If you need that file to be downloaded to the client then you must create a .res file for that map.

First find the .wad file nad put it in the server, next find the map that needs it. Now create a new notepad document and simply type in the name of the wad on seperate lines for each wad you want the client to download because their game crashes too.
e.g:
de_vegas.wad
jos.wad
Now just save the file as the same name as the map, but with a .res on the end
e.g:
aim_map.res

Now if the client does not have that file, the server will upload it to them.

Halflife.wad is a default wad file. You need to have the Half-Life base content installed,
no matter which modification you are trying to host.
Do this in your HLDS folder, where the update tool is. (Also adjusting the path in the following):
hldsupdatetool -command update -game valve -dir D:\Programs\HLDS -verify_all -retry

I fixed that problem.
One plugin was "bugged" he is configured to start a text file, read it, and close it.

Problem was he started file, read it, and didnt close, and after much map changes server was overflooded with that file process and couldnt load anthing else.

I fixed that plugin and now it's working 5 days in a row without a single crash
