ML Error Messages

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

The error messages generated by MASM components fall into three categories:

  • Fatal errors. These indicate a severe problem that prevents the utility from completing its normal process.

  • Nonfatal errors. The utility may complete its process. If it does, its result is not likely to be the one you want.

  • Warnings. These messages indicate conditions that may prevent you from getting the results you want.

All error messages take the following form:

  
Utility: Filename (Line) : [Error_type} (Code): Message_text  

where:

Utility
The program that sent the error message.

Filename
The file that contains the error-generating condition.

Line
The approximate line where the error condition exists.

Error_type
Fatal Error, Error, or Warning.

Code
The unique 5- or 6-digit error code.

Message_text
A short and general description of the error condition.
