Cause of fsav.exe return code 12

ollieeillo W/ Alumni Posts: 2 Security Scout

What is the likely cause of error code 12 in Windows folder?


Or put another way: how can we reproduce this error code in a test environment?


I get that the description for error code 12 is "Failed to open some targets, these objects may still be infected".


  • Does this mean the file/folder is locked by another process?
  • Does this mean that the file/folder did not exist at all?
  • Does this mean that the file/folder was too large?

    We need details:


    - OS versions

    - F-Secure versions (endpoint software and centralized management software)

    - What were you trying to accomplish and how?
