Decrypting PKI Codes

How to decode Windows errors?

Many Windows error messages provide a hexadecimal error code, for example 0x8007267C. This code can provide helpful information. But how to translate it into a readable error message?

At least two commands can be used to decode an error code:

· certutil -error [Code]
· err.exe [Code]

For example
certutil -error 0x8007267C

Certutil is part of all Windows server stock keeping units (SKU) and Windows Vista. The err executable is available from the
Microsoft Download center.
