[CS 1.6 Beta] Fatal Error - could not load library (client.dll) #605

Not sure if this has to do with the new beta update that just came out but when trying to open Counter-Strike it gives me a fatal error window:

could not load library c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\half-life\cstrike\cl_dlls\client.dll

About an hour or so ago I could launch the game but after returning to my computer and trying to open it again I get the above error, given what I read around and the timing I would assume it may have to do with today's beta update but alas, I can't enter the game to check the output of "version" on the console to be sure.

I have checked for client.dll and it's there, together with client.dylib and I've also tried to check integrity of game cache on Steam but the error remains.

OS: Windows 7


Aand this is also dupe of #604.
