Frustrated by the lack of a simple resource on the Internet that associates HRESULT values with symbols and descriptions, I’ve created my own. This new list of HRESULT codes should hopefully help anyone programming on Windows systems (or even just having to interface with them).
For those who don’t know, HRESULTs are basically error codes that are used by some software systems. These are the kind of codes that you’ll occasionally see in cryptic error messages, such as ‘Operation failed, error code 0x80001234’.
There are a couple of minor issues to sort out, but the first generated list can be access from http://codeswamp.tolon.co.uk.
