A Day in the Life

A day in my life. Thoughts on leadership, management, startups, technology, software, concurrent development, etc... Basically the stuff I think about from 10am to 6pm.

AVIFileOpen returns 0x8004406d…

So what does it mean? I was trying to open a .wav file to merge into my AVI stream. After a bit of running around I found that my .wav file only contained a header…no data. And this is why the AVIFileOpen was failing with the return code AVIERR_FILEREAD.

Not a very good error message because the Microsoft documentation says the error indicates, "A disk error occurred while reading the file."

Which is not the case.

Thanks,
