This submission to the Adobe FrameMaker Forum -- http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b61efd -- illustrates FrameMaker's ability to output rather lengthy (albeit not especially human-friendly) error messages.
Why not supplement those error messages with complete version and patch-level information? This would enable users, Adobe support, and Adobe FrameMaker forum regulars to quickly answer the inevitable question arising from a recurring error, "what version and patch-level of FrameMaker are you running?"
FWIW, the information is already there. The first four digits of the
error code provide most of the info. Also, the error log file header
info is already quite complete, e.g.
