Exit code -1073740940 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all , 

    We are working with MsHPC 2008 (not R2) , 

    Recently some of our task fails with the following error message - 

    "Task failed during execution with exit code -1073740940. Please check task's output for error details." - there is no output .

    If we restart the failed tasks - they finish successfully.

    Do you know what might be the problem ? 

    Regards ,

  • Hi Shay,

    That error code indicates that the task exited as a result of heap corruption:

    # for hex 0xc0000374 / decimal -1073740940
      STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION                                         ntstatus.h
    # A heap has been corrupted.

    Is it possible that your task is experiencing some random heap corruption?
