Windows Builder Disabled

Hi Matthew,

These tests are only run sequential right? As in, Phab doesn’t build two diffs concurrently?

If it used to pass then there might be something running on the server consuming memory.

The pagefile is probably set to auto, but that means a certain % of the disk, if it needs more for some
Reason it won’t grow beyond this maximum.

Someone would need to login to see what’s going on 😊

Thanks for doing this Matthew!

Sadly no. This is quite odd. I'll need to look into this when I get back
from Hac Phi.
