can't turn the game on

I convinced one of my friends to play FF. He can't even turn it on. He downloaded it from here, the fortress-forever.com(exe) link. What could be his problem and how to solve it if reinstalling the game and rebooting the system multiple times doesn't work? He's using Windows 8.

check if source sdk base 2006 is installed. It's in library -> tools.

Well what does "can't even turn it on" mean? What is the error message? Is it from Steam? Does hl2.exe crash?

It sounds to me like he's running "source SDK" and not "source SDK base 2006". There's a handful of different tools in your library that say source sdk, so make sure he's actually running base 2006. And not just plain old source SDK, which when you run just brings up a menu.
