In our Qedit product at Robelle, we have a command called REFLECT which uses Reflection to send or receive files. We cannot display the error message at the time of the error, but we can display the code after the fact, which only is a number. I was asked what a particular error meant and couldn't find online a summary of these ERROR-CODES anywhere.
I figured that the error was in the HLP files, which are of course no longer natively supported on Windows. So I downloaded the helper program for .HLP files and found the error-codes definitions in the RCL help file:The magical ERROR-CODE meanings:
The following errors can be referenced with the ERROR-CODE function. 1 Transmit error. CTS or DSR required; if modem connection, no DCD present. 2 EOF on file read. 3 Timeout while waiting for expected or specified data. 4 Received unexpected data from host. 5 File transfer aborted by user. 6 Fatal block number sequence error on a file transfer. 7 Received a nonprocessable message during file transfer. 8 Data message received during file transfer was not the correct packet type. 9 File transfer aborted by host program. 10 Local file does not exist. 11 File transfer failed. 12 File transfer software is incompatible with the host file transfer software. 13 Disk error detected. 14 Too many consecutive NAKs received or sent during a file transfer. 15 Could not create local file. 16 Could not execute host file transfer program. 17 User requested termination of file transfer with STOP (not ABORT). 18 Local file already exists. 19 Unexpected error detected. 20 Unsupported terminal class (relates to IBM hosts). 21 VM in CP mode (relates to IBM hosts). 22 Bad syntax (relates to IBM hosts). 23 File transfer link failed. 24 File not updated. 25 No file selected. 26 Host software requires OLD-WRQ file transfer protocol. 101 No files were found to backup. 103 Backup terminated by user. 104 Backup terminated due to error. 120 Not a valid state file. 121 Error loading state file. 122 Must have an external LATCI to exit. 160 Bad command. 161 Command Language Syntax Error. 162 Error detected while executing command. 163 Decryption error. 164 Buffer overflow while transmitting. 201 System error, DDE operation not completed (DDE client error code). 202 Insufficient memory available for the operation (DDE client error code). 203 An invalid conversation was specified (DDE client error code). 204 Maximum conversation count was exceeded (DDE client error code). 205 Client message not acknowledged by server, timed out (DDE client error code). 206 Server sent negative acknowledgment (DDE client error code). 207 Server is busy, unable to complete DDE operation (DDE client error code). 208 Waiting for server acknowledgment of message (DDE client error code). 209 Invalid advise-link was specified (DDE client error code). 210 Maximum advise-link count exceeded (DDE client error code). 211 Advise-link to item already exists (DDE client error code). 212 Data from server is invalid or has invalid format (DDE client error code). 251 VINT14.386 not installed. 252 Invalid communications driver. 253 Not enough memory to load driver. 254 No more connection handles available. 255 Cannot load communications driver. 256 Cannot free overlay memory. 257 Invalid handle. 258 Can't find communication driver overlay. 259 Error opening device through Windows. 260 Required drivers not found. 261 VINT14 memory allocation error. 262 Port already in use. 263 Connection already in use. 264 Cannot connect to host. 265 No host name specified. 266 No more network handles available. 267 Invalid connection name. 268 Invalid password. 269 Character Delay value is out of range. 270 Line Delay value is out of range. 271 VINT14 not compatible with DLL. 272 Cannot delete default templates. 273 Cannot load a library. 274 Missing or invalid RCOMTASK.EXE. 275 Subfunction invalid or not supported. 276 Subfunction call failed. 277 Waiting for connection to come up. 278 Cannot change a default saved connection. 279 Error attaching to server. 280 Machine setup requires using the Windows serial driver.
