Error Buddy Description
The Error Buddy application tries to explain the error codes you keep getting back from API calls. Enter the error code in either hex or decimal format and press return to get a textual description of the error, often along with the C macro definition for that error.
Error Buddy currently supports the following APIs: Win32, MAPI, TAPI, Notes, LDAP, DirectSound, DirectSetup, DirectPlay, DirectInput, DirectDraw, and Winsock.
When you first run Error Buddy, you have to tell it what translation DLLs to use. Click on the system menu and select translators. Click on the add button, and make sure you are in the Error Buddy sub-directory. Select all DLLs in the directory and click on open. The translations you have installed will be listed, click OK and start translating.
Note, Error Buddy works out if the DLL is the right kind, and will let you know if it isnt. It is always safe to select all DLLs in a sub-directory.
There two options you may change by selecting options in the system menu. You can make Error Buddy assume every code is in hex, this means you dont need to type 0x before the number. You can also decide how many error codes are remembered in the combo box.
You can create new Error Tranlation DLLs using the code template supplied. These could be for publicly available APIs or for proprietry APIs for use within your company only.
