FxCopCmd Errors

FxCopCmd does not consider all errors to be fatal. If FxCopCmd has sufficient information to perform a partial analysis, it performs the analysis and reports errors that occurred. The error code, which is a 32-bit integer, contains a bitwise combination of numeric values that correspond to errors.

The following table describes the error codes returned by FxCopCmd:

Error

Numeric value

No errors

0x0

Analysis error

0x1

Rule exceptions

0x2

Project load error

0x4

Assembly load error

0x8

Rule library load error

0x10

Import report load error

0x20

Output error

0x40

Command line switch error

0x80

Initialization error

0x100

Assembly references error

0x200

0x400

Unknown error

0x1000000

The Analysis error is returned for fatal errors. It indicates that the analysis could not be completed. When applicable, the error code also contains the underlying cause of the fatal error. The following conditions generate fatal errors:

  • The analysis could not be performed caused by insufficient input.

  • The analysis threw an exception that is not handled by FxCopCmd.

  • The specified project file could not be found or is corrupted.

  • The output option was not specified or the file could not be written.

    NoteNote

    The FxCopCmd return code "Assembly references error" 0x200 by itself is a warning rather than an error. This return code indicates that missing indirect references were found but that FxCopCmd was able to handle them. It is a warning that there is a possibility that some analysis results might have been compromised. Consider "Assembly references error" return code as an error when it is combined with any other return code.
