LunaticFridge,

Thanks for your help. I understand what you are saying about GetLastError. And reading Microsoft's documentation about it makes it seem even less useful. It may be helpful like you say if you already know the API call is failing.

The few places where I want to be aware of failure I put something like this in:

if (DeviceDetected == FALSE)
	DisplayData("Device not detected");
else
	DisplayData("Device detected");
That way I know for sure what the results of a call are.

Again, thanks to you and the others for your help.
