1st April is near so I though to publish this. I used to make these when I was about 10. It wont use any softwares and it doesn't need any programming skills. So, let's get started
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making It
To get started, open notepad and copy in the following code:
You can use your own message and title of the error
After copying this, save it as a 'vbs' file
When you open the vbs file, you will get an error message.
Step 2: Modifying the Error
There are many type of errors.
Some have only 'OK' button, some have 'Yes' and 'No' buttons
You can make any type of error you want.
To change the type of error, you can modify the numbers of the code(which were '4+16' in the last step)
Here is a list of the feature of the first number (no. before the '+' sign):
0- ok button only
1-ok and cancel
2-abort retry and ignore
3- yes,no and cancel
4- yes and no
5- retry and cancel
Here is a list of the feature of the second number (no. after the '+' sign):
Step 3: Examples
Here are some examples
Step 4: Masking the Error/Preparing the Error for a Prank
To mask the error as an app or a game, simply copy the vbs file some where (except the desktop) and make a shortcut of the file on the desktop. Then change the name to.......let's say FIFA 10 and use a similar icon. When someone opens the game, they will get an error saying that they are a big douchebag :-p
Vote if you liked it :)
