A Summary Of Tried (and Failed) Won Fixes

I know that none of the problems I'm having are anything to do with the NS team, or NS community, but if anyone has any ideas I'd be very happy to hear them!

I have the won connection problem, every time I try to join an online game I get an error saying my NS exe is out of date. It isn't.
Here is the full list of things I've tried doing to fix this:

-Tried entering HL by different methods (Shortcut, desktop ect..)
-Edited woncomm.lst to add a new ip
-Downloaded a different wonncomm.lst from NSMBs
-Re-installed HL and NS
-Copied a working HL directory to my computer over a LAN
-Re-Installed windows
-Got a brand spanking new CD key
-Formatted both my hard drives and totally re-installed everything
-Pressed f5 lots before booting HL

This is turning into some kind of NS-free nightmare. If anyone has any advice please don't hold back!

    I don't think you get it.
    As I understand it there is no update beyond . If you know of one, please share.

    Yeesh. Tell me what's on the command-line of your launch NS shortcut (on your start menu). Should be something like:

    C:\SIERRA\Half-Life\hl.exe -game ns -noipx -32bpp -nointro -console

    Also, what is specified in you 'Start In' (aka working) directory on the shortcut? Something like:

    Can you play HL deathmatch online? If not contact Sierra/valve tech support.
