    ! There are certainly more Windows messages than I've actually ever seen come up.
    Stay tuned. Program long enough you'll see 'em all; seldom will that occur only when you ask.

    See the FormatMessage() Windows API function, along with the Error codes in your WIn32API.INC file.

    You should be able to write a little program something like...
    Code:
     
    FOR Z = Low_win_err_msg TO HI_win_err_msg
        FormatMessage (Z) ...szMSG 
        MSGBOX szMSg
        (print screen here) 
    NEXT
    Or even, DO...LOOP with an INPUTBOX$ to prompt for "Windows Error code number" if there are only a few such codes in which you have an interest.

    Bringing up Windows error messages

    This is more curiosity on my part, not something I have a desparate need for, but is there a way to "fake out" Windows and bring up various messages and dialogs that can appear, say the non-Windows approved software installation message/dialog? Something similar to testing ones PBWin error routines by setting your own error. I'm looking for an easy way to get some screen shots for a manual.
