Multihost / srcds not working

I've been trying to figure out for years why multihost isn't working on my computer, it says "entering battle" but never actually departs. I found that srcds.exe should be running, but on my computer after I hit "start" on the boat, it opens for a few seconds in task manager, then closes. the same thing happens if i run it directly in the folder.

If I instead try it on an older computer, the behavior is the same if i'm running it on its own from the vindictus folder, but if I make a multihost boat in game, it works as intended, and boat departs. in event viewier on my main computer I get the following error

Fault bucket , type 0
Event Name: PCA2
Response: Not available
Cab Id: 0

Problem signature:
P1: srcds.exe
P3: srcds.exe
P4: unknown
P5: unknown
P6: 200
P7: -1

I can't find any log specific to srcds so I'm not sure where else to check and how to fix this. Would love to be able to get this fixed!
