Default Application Profile for Half Life 2

Hi there
Am trying to set up an application profile for HL2 in the nVidia control panel.
When I click on the "Add Profiles" button and use the browse option, I am unable to find an appropriate .exe file for HL2.
Can anybody who has set up a HL2 application profile point me in the right direction please ??
If I was to disable AA/AF in the game Options menu, wud the AA/AF settings I have in Global Driver Settings work ok in HL2 ?? I thought it was always best to use the in-game settings and disable via nVidia control panel, hence why I want to setup a profile.
Many thanks

Thks for the reply
When I follow yur suggested path I find a folder "Half Life 2 ". There is no .exe file in that folder. Is it the folder I choose when using the browse option in application profile ??
I did notice in that folder and icon similar to my desktop short cut.
But when I click on that ( with the game CD in the drive ) I get an error message " unable to load filesystem_dtsio.dll"
What I am doing wrong ??

You can't load it from there. That is the given executable. Just point it to that file for the application settings and it will work fine.

Then start it normally as you would, through Steam and it will work fine.

roger that - got it working, something weird though - If I call the profile Half-Life2 it disappears after pointing it to the HL2.exe file?? - If I call it say - bubba and point it to the HL2.exe it works fine...........odd.

at least its now working - thanks dude.

I think the "-" isn't recognised in the profile manager. I named it Half Life 2 and it's working fine.

Glad I could help.
