Translating numbers into human readable mneonic strings ie. errlookup.exe
Posted on 2000-03-24
errlookup.exe when given an error code returns a description. Is there
any interface/DLL in NT which when given an error code returns a
short corresponding NT name for the error, and a longer description.
It seems unbelievable that errlookup.exe would exist, but a program
could not utilize its functionality.
Partial answer.. for OLE/DB use the extended error capabilities.. log the
error, and then immediately read back the answer.. but this doesn't
presumably cover all error codes, and gives no short name eg. E_FAIL
