FileMaker Server provides an Auto Update mechanism to download FileMaker plug-ins directly to FileMaker Pro/Advanced clients automatically. It has it's own seperate list of error codes which are not included in the list of error codes in the FileMaker Help guide. This function takes the error code and returns the English language description for that error code to help troubleshoot issues when downloading plug-ins via the Auto Update mechanism. The error codes only apply to the FMSAUC_UpdatePlugIn function.
