It works fine on 64-bit Windows. The only issue is that it doesn't know *every* error (for example, the one you mentioned). There are some errors missing (not specifically 64-bit errors) and you can ask the author to add them.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I wasn't saying it wouldn't run on 64 bit.
I didn't see anythong that said that there was a lack of data for
both 32 bit and 64 bit.
I shouldn't have mentioned 64 bit - that was an assumption because
32 bit errors are well known.

I've seen a lot of these windows error decoders come and go.
I see that MS has folded all the errors into a single source.

Actually, I get the error code descriptions directly from the OS.. Pass the error number to the OS and I get the description... Maybe I have to do something dif with x64... but I have Win7 x32 to work with...
