need you to decode data words...


I am troubleshooting a Windows error in which the message says, "The error status code is contained within the returned data (formatted as Words) and may point you towards the problem."  Those words in bytes are:

0000: 00 00 04 00 01 00 54 00   ......T.
0008: 00 00 00 00 dc 07 00 80   ....Ü..¿
0010: 00 00 00 00 84 01 00 c0   ....¿..À
0018: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0028: 7a 09 00 00               z...    

and in Words are:
0000: 00040000 00540001 00000000 800007dc
0010: 00000000 c0000184 00000000 00000000
0020: 00000000 00000000 0000097a

Can someone decode this output and give me a clue as to what it is saying?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That's really impossible without some context. Do you have the source for the program that is running? If not, what application or event is causing this?

Thanks very much for your efforts.  The data came from a Windows Event ID 2012, Source: Srv:

While transmitting or receiving data, the server encountered a network error. Occassional errors are expected, but large amounts of these indicate a possible error in your network configuration.  The error status code is contained within the returned data (formatted as Words) and may point you towards the problem.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at
From the Microsoft Web site you listed,

Event Agent encountered a problem during the shutdown of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) extension agent. This will not affect the operation of the system.
User Action
No user action is required.

So Microsoft does not recommend taking any action on their own event 2012, and they give no indication how to fix it presumably because they recommend taking no action. Why are you trying to fix this?

i know what the MS article says and i've researched the issue in general for a while now.  i wanted to learn more about what the data says.
The word shows the Hex decimal value for the issue. The second line shows the actual error.


The device is not in a valid state to perform this request.
