Yet More Useless Computer Error Messages

April 5, 2010

More stupefying examples of error messages that only serve to add to the confusion. This one is a new example from my machine:

Exception of type ‘System.OutofMemoryException’ was thrown.

Apart from the obvious riposte, “thrown where?” how is this helpful?

And from a good friend who has more software savvy than I will ever possess comes this little beauty;

An unexpected exception occurred.

Number: (none)


Transaction (Process ID 198) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim.  Rerun the transaction.

Inner Message: (none)

Well, of course it was deadlocked. That’s exactly my emotion too. And I really feel for the victim.
