Hi guys,

Does somebody know a tool which translates error numbers like "System error -2147287038"

Thanks in advance

Not so much a tool as a way to convert them into more meaningful info:

- open up the windows calculator and put it in scientific mode
- paste in the (negative) error code
- convert the number to hex base
- the last 4 digits of the result give you the 'standard' error code

so for example your -2147287038 becomes exit code 2 after this operation

...then all you need is an encyclopaedic knowledge of DOS error codes LOL

The most common are:
2 - File not found
3 - Path not found
5 - Access denied
