Windows 7: Task Scheduler help

Task Scheduler help

Hi people,

Hoping Task Scheduler in Win7 is set up the same as Server 2008 R2.

I'm trying to find out where I can get information on how to read the hexadecimal output in the sixth column, "Last Run Result".
I know that "0x0" means completed successfully and "0x41325" means couldn't complete but I'd like to have a list of definitions for the others that might pop up instead of having to work them out.

Anyone able to assist?

Thanks,

Sean

Task Scheduler Error and Success Constants (Windows)

Task Scheduler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
The Last Result column displays a completion code. You can obtain a full explanation of all Windows completion codes from MSDN, but the common codes for scheduled tasks are:
0x0: The operation completed successfully.
0x1: An incorrect function was called or an unknown function was called.
0xa: The environment is incorrect.
