Is there any application that will copy the text from an error message box into the clipboard?

    can we assume you're looking for Windows (or Windows-7) software? – quack quixote Apr 25 '10 at 5:49

In Windows, with message dialogs like this:

alt text

You can use Ctrl+C to copy, and when you paste, you'll get this:

Message title.
Oops, something went wrong. :-(

Just use Ctrl-C, then paste it into notepad (or whatever else). It's always worked for me
