Windows Mobile - Error not found



  • The Web Viewer browser can't view the source code for a web page, and it doesn't know why:

    wm_error_not_found



  • But what happens if the resource assembly containing the error message that the resource assembly containing the error message can not be found can not be found?

    By the way, was that "screen shot" taken with a digital camera or what?



  • Still a lot better than some others...

    "Error: No error"

    "Error: The operation completed successfully"

    "Error: Error not found"

    "An error has occurred while displaying an error message"

    "F**k error"

    I can believe the system either

    * Doesn't have a screenshot functionality

    * Has a completely modal error dialog, so a screenshot cannot be taken

    * Cannot easily transfer files to a desktop (if it's on a phone the OP may not have the right cables), and cannot post to this forum itself

    The borders look too perfectly straight to me, camera shots are never perfectly lined up, and edges never seem to look straight either way.

    possibly a VM or emulator?



  • Makes perfect sense to me. Presumably, they've compiled the resource file (called something like resource.rc and relevant to Win32, MFC, etc programmers) containing all the error messages into a seperate DLL, presumably so you can easily load a different DLL which contains the error strings in German (or French, or Hungarian, or whatever). Only it can't be found. Who knows - possibly that's caused by the underlying problem which is causing the error message in the first place.

    Incidentally, it does know why it is experiencing the problem, it just can't figure out how to express that in English :p
     



  • To be fair, if Windows Mobile actually had all the resource files containing all its error messages, there'd be no room for actual programs or data.

  • I'm a big fan of the error reporting pattern:

    switch(result)
    {
    case ERROR_SUCCESS:
      ...
    case ERROR_FAILURE:
      ...
    case ERROR_SOMEOTHERTHING:
      ...
    default:
      LogMessage("Undefined Switch Case");
      break;
    };
