ERRLOOK Reference

The ERRLOOK utility, which is available from the Tools menu, retrieves a system error message or module error message based on the value entered. ERRLOOK retrieves the error message text automatically if you drag and drop a hexadecimal or decimal value from the Visual Studio debugger into the Value edit control. You can also enter a value either by typing it in the Value edit control or by pasting it from the Clipboard and clicking Look Up.

The accelerator keys for Copy (CTRL+C), Cut (CTRL+X), and Paste (CTRL+V) work for both the Value and Error Message edit controls if you first highlight the text.
