I think this is a Steam error rather than an issue with the mod. Do you get the same error message if you try to launch Half-Life? Try first restarting Steam and restarting the game, if that fails, restart your computer and try again. If it still wont work, reinstall Steam, Half-Life and CoF.

1. Don't use Desura to download.
2. Did you install correctly?
example Path: Steam\Steamapps\<Username>\Half-Life\CryOfFear\
3. If none of these didn't work, reinstall the same thing again.
