There are many people out there who have no clue what some Windows error codes mean. Well, we have good news for this category of users, as the Error Lookup Tool will help you understand better what happens with your computer when you receive a specific error.

The Error Lookup Tool is developed in C/C++ and even if it looks quite minimal and like an extremely lightweight tool, actually, it is very useful. The application comes with an easy interface, which means that you will understand fast enough how it is actually functioning. After you launch this application, you will need to specify the error code that you get and all details regarding that specific error will be explained below.

The tool has a large database of error codes such as: regular Windows error, Windows Internet errors, BSOD errors, STOP codes, NTSTATUS errors, Task Scheduler Service and more. To make things even better you can configure the application to even exclude or include a particular system module by access the applications File->Settings->System modules.

Error Lookup supports a multitude of widely used languages, apart from English, which is, as expected, the default language. You can download this useful tool from the internet and you can install it on any computer that runs on Windows XP SP3 up to Windows 10.

Keep in mind that you will be able to install either the installer file or the portable version, which you will be able to save on a memory stick and use it on a computer that doesn’t have an internet connection. To activate the portable mode, you will need to create an “errorlookup.ini” file in the application folder or move it from “%APPDATA%\Henry++\Error Lookup”.

Do you get Windows errors often? Will you use the Error Tool application on your Windows PC in order to detect the issues that it has?
