Win32 exception codes start with a two-bit severity indication.
00 means "success", so nothing is wrong.

11 is an "error".

That's why the common exception codes you see start with hex C0, as they
are "errors".

The rest of the top 16 bits are the "facility" that caused the error.
Often not filled in.

Almost, AAUI. The next significant bit after the severity bits is a custom flag - 0 indicates it is a MS exception, 1 that it's from a third party. The remaining upper 13 bits are the facility.
