The Task (from which the Start Task Action is executed) will stop with error if the Task started by Start Task Action fails to complete successfully. For this to happen, however, the started Task must finish before the Start Task Action does. If the Start Task Action is finished (i.e., the Task has already proceeded with subsequent Actions) when the Task started by it finishes with error, then the Task that contains Start Task Action is not stopped and selected On Error procedures are not performed.

To always process the completion status of started Task and perform related procedures, select Wait for Task to complete or terminate option in Options tab of Start Task Action properties.
