.NET Framework error in Français (French):

FileStream devait ouvrir un périphérique qui n'était pas un fichier. Pour une prise en charge de périphériques tels que 'com1:' ou 'lpt1:', appelez CreateFile, puis utilisez les constructeurs FileStream qui utilisent un handle OS (de système d'exploitation) comme IntPtr.

English translation: FileStream was asked to open a device that was not a file. For support for devices like 'com1:' or 'lpt1:', call CreateFile, then use the FileStream constructors that take an OS handle as an IntPtr.

Search for english version of this error message on google.


I always spent long time trying to translate error messages logged by application deployed at my Italian client and the translations did not match anyway. After long frustration, I finally found this site. So far, it has saved me hunderds of hours of laborous searching for translations of those Italian error messages.
I simply love it!
