Failed to start game (missing executable)

So I decided to get back into CS1.6, but whenever I try to launch it, I get that error that I put in the thread title. I've verified the files, uninstalled and redownloaded, restarted Steam... no change. I have no idea whether the executable is actually missing or not because I'm not even sure how Steam handles CS, whether it's entirely self-contained, or whether it launches the hl.exe with parameters to run CS instead. So, anyone know how I can fix CS so I can play again?

Cheers!

Opt out of Beta (both Half-Life and CS) and try to reinstall it again.
If it won't work, post a screenshot here how does that error look like.

Checked both, neither of them were set to be in any beta. I can reinstall CS again, but I don't think it'll make a difference because I already tried that. Here's the picture.

Never mind, now it works. I deleted both Half-Life and Counter-Strike, deleted the folders in steamapps, ran a registry cleaner, reinstalled Counter-Strike, and now it will launch.
