Updating the server will take a long time and amp might not know when the update has finished. Better monitor steamcmd.exe and try to start the server after the process has stopped .

Starting the server is still not possibel after the update, you need to register/install directx components on your server.

anyone got a script to register the missing sound dll's ? I really dont like to install the complete DirectX package.
