Are there any general Windows functions that will give me a string for the name and/or description of an HRESULT similar to DXGetErrorString9() and DXGetErrorDescription9() for DirectX errors?

And in the debugger (in case you ever just want to check rather than do it programmatically) - put a watch on:

@err,hr

@err is equivilent to calling GetLastError(), and the ,hr translates a HRESULT to a string for Windows result codes. You can also use the ,hr on your own variables:

HRESULT result = SomeWin32CallThatReturnsAHRESULT();
...
put a watch on: result,hr
