Sometimes an error message in WATCHOUT can be converted into Hexadecimal to give more information.
Some error codes in WATCHOUT includes a Decimal value e.g.:
"Operating system error: 2147220927"
by converting the Decimal value into Hexadecimal and run a search on for example Google may give you a more detailed error description or a clue of what may have went wrong.
Good to know when making the conversion is that all error messages are to be interpreted and converted as negative values i.e. -2147220927 in the above case.
Warning messages, however, are positive values.

Remove the letters, add a "0"(zero) and an "x" (lower case x) which gives you = 0x80040241
