The error code, which is expressed in “-2147187962”, can be translated using the Calculator app in Windows, to HEX. The HEX value here is “FFFF FFFF 8004 8306″. If you just take the numbers, you’ll end up with: “80048306″. Now that is a cool way to use the Calculator!

This code and many others can be found on the MSDN page: Web service error codes. Resulting in the following privilege error code:


BIG thanks to my colleague Harvey for pointing this out to me!
