These are some of the errors that I have run into that have made me either laugh hysterically or want to punch someone. I will add more as I find them, right now the collection is not that impressive (I think I have more, just can’t find them yet).
|This error occurred when I wasn’t even dealing with a number. I think it must have been an inner exception or something that trickled its way up… somehow. Very irritating.|
|I would see this every time I would try to install visual studio 2008. Visual Studio was installed for the most part but the debugger wasn’t!|
|During the SQL Server 2008 R2 all in one installer (or maybe it is another one?) this would happen. Who would have know that deleting the exact folder it is complaining about would have fixed the problem!|
|Yay Visual Studio 2010 still has continued the Catastrophic Failure error message box! This happens when a file cannot be located and you double click on the error message to view the missing file. CATASTROHPIC!!!|
|This is a magical error… because you don’t know what you are agreeing or disagreeing to. Thanks Outlook 2010.|
|This is by far one of the most useless errors of all time. It tells you nothing because the problem causing it is just so broad. It can be a lot of different factors.|
|Visual Studio 2012 returns this error when you are having a problem with your solution TFS bindings and you just continuously ignore the errors about needing to fix your bindings. Eventually VS gets fed up I guess and this is the best it can spout back at you.
