Windows Error Codes Described

How many times did you see an error message with the deceptive text „Error 3“? “Error 2”, anyone? Well, mostly these codes are triggered by internal Windows function that are called from the program that simply fail.

Instead of using some text to describe this error, most coders simply display the error code. Hey coders, I tell you a secret: Most users would prefer to get the description too!

Until all programs also include the error message, see this System Error Codes list on MSDN
