Find out what Windows error codes mean with a free, portable program

I don't have to look up Windows error codes often. You know the ones I mean -- they're those lovely hexadecimal heads-ups that sometimes pop up when a program acts up? When I do, however, it would be nice to have a simpler way to do it than sifting through Google or MSDN search results.

ErrMsg is a free, portable utility which makes decoding those messages about as simple as it can get. Launch the program, type in your code, and a window appears with a straightforward version of what the error means.

You can find the ErrMsg download on FavesSoft's website -- but save yourself some scrolling and use your browser's find function and input errmsg to jump to the right spot on the page.
