Error codes

If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK. Otherwise, the return value is an error code. To get a description of the error, access the ErrorMessage task property.


The wall clock is used to determine the run time. The time is your best guess of how long the task will take; however, it needs to be fairly accurate because it is used to allocate resources. If the task exceeds this time, the task is terminated and its state becomes Failed.

The sum of all Runtime values for the tasks in the job should be less than the run-time value for the job (see ISchedulerJob.Runtime). If the task's run-time value is greater than the job's run-time value, then the task will run until it exceeds the job's run-time value. If this occurs, the task is terminated and its state becomes Failed.
