ISchedulerJob::ErrorMessage property

Retrieves the job-related error message or job cancellation message.

This property is read-only.


HRESULT get_ErrorMessage(
  [out] BSTR *pErrorMessage

Property value

The message.

Error codes

If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK. Otherwise, the return value is an error code.


The message contains the last message that was set for the job. The message can be a run-time error message or the message passed to the IScheduler::CancelJob method.

Check the message if the job state is Failed or Canceled or if a job's method call fails.

For possible HPC-defined errors, see the fields defined for the ErrorCode class.


The following example shows how to access the error message. The SubmitJob method call fails with 80040621 because a task in the job does not specify a command line.

    _bstr_t message;

    hr = pScheduler->SubmitJob(pJob, NULL, NULL);
    if (FAILED(hr))
        wprintf(L"pScheduler->SubmitJob failed with 0x%x.\n", hr);

        // Have to call Refresh to update the job object with the message.
        hr = pJob->Refresh();
        if (FAILED(hr))
            wprintf(L"pJob->Refresh failed with 0x%x.\n", hr);
            goto cleanup;

        hr = pJob->get_ErrorMessage(&message.GetBSTR());
        if (FAILED(hr))
            wprintf(L"pJob->get_ErrorMessage failed with 0x%x.\n", hr);

        wprintf(L"%s\n", message.GetBSTR());

        goto cleanup;
