I don't see what's so hard to understand. You're experiencing a simple Invalid Argument error, which means your argument is not valid. Normally this would be ok, but you're having the platform type, which makes things a little more dangerous, since that means the error is of type platform. Of course, you could have understood all that from the error code (the 40203 suffix is a sure sign!), but if you happen to forget the table of error codes (bad practice in itself), it's right there in bold letters for your convenience. What more could you ask for?

It seems like most Microsoft tools still rely too much on COM to provide useful error messages. We just ran into a similar problem the other day with SSIS. If I ever have to look up the meaning of the HRESULT from a COMException again, it'll be too soon. :)
