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 form:
Utility: Filename (Line) : [Error type} (Code): Message text
Utility is the program that sent the error message.
Filename is the file that contains the error-generating condition.
Line is the approximate line where the error condition exists.
Error type is Fatal Error, Error, or Warning.
Code is the unique 5- or 6-digit error code.
Message text is a short and general description of the error condition.
Error Message Lists
Messages for each utility are listed below in numerical order, with a brief
explanation of each error. The following two tables list the messages by utility
and error code, respectively.
