No, not MELT, but WELT...
Windows Error Lookup Tool!

This is an improved of my original error utility GunErr.

This will work with ALL windows error messages now including COM HRESULTS!
For HRESULTS, it will display:
Severity code:SUCCESS/ERROR
Facility Code: Where the code came from
and
The Facility's Status Code AKA error number

It has the same look and feel as MELT and can even save notes

All features now work.

Since HRESULTS are usually in hex, that is what WELT will accept...
IE... 8004000A
will display
ERROR
ITF
10
Not able to bind to the source


Will update website with this tomorrow

hi Gunner, just an idea, how if you hook the msgbox directly and scan for the err code and interpret it, then concat it with the def str and disp it.

Oops, did I forget to do that? ;) I will add that after work today.

It is an idea, I will keep that on the back burner for now.

I am glad that everyone likes it! One question, should I support SCODEs? (16bit HRESULTS)? Are they still used/any programs still use them to warrent support? The layout of an SCODE is a little differant than a HRESULT but they are basically the same.

Depends on the Complexity:Benifit ratio.

If SCODES can be produced quick and easily, then go for it, it will eventually benefit someone. And when it does they will be surprised and remember to trust the tool for more and more tasks.

If it required a fair bit of overhead, the one odd person who would have appreciated this feature will have to do without (unless your aiming to please EVERYONE ;) )
