HRESULT is a data type numerical error codes used in Windows operating systems, and the earlier IBM/Microsoft OS/2 operating system, to represent error conditions, and warning conditions, prevent collisions between error codes in different subsystems of the OS/2 operating system at the same time. Various bits within an HRESULT encode information about the nature of the error code. HRESULT error codes are commonly used in COM programming, where they form the basis for a standardized COM error handling convention.

    NOTE: Direct2D is supposed to return D2DERR_EFFECT_IS_NOT_REGISTERED (0x88990028), but it doesn’t. It’ll actually return HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_NOT_FOUND), which is 0x80070490. I check for both, just in case Microsoft decides to fix its code.
