"Unhandled exception at 0x201b824a in hl2.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000." This is all the debug on VS gives me. Worse yet, I can't seem to trace it back to anything.

Has anyone had this happen before?

I would take a look at the call-stack (though that could be completely useless as well.) and look for passing of null-pointers to internal function calls to the engine.

Because we don't have access to the source code we're basically screwed when we get this. Have you tried using the fixes:

And to think I haven't even started yet and I'm screwed

Are both the client & server solutions built correctly, and to completion??

I got this once when I interuppted the Server build, but ran Debug (Client Build) ... since it attempted to load a file that wasn't there it responded with a reading violation.
