A customer started five Tools compilation processes in parallel through a batch file, in order to compile SRFs for five different languages. The batch file was started through the Task Scheduler three times a day. The scheduled task was set up through a Terminal Services session. These two side conditions (Task Scheduler and Terminal Services session) were necessary to observe the unexpected behavior.

The fifth compilation process always failed shortly after starting. The Tools log file contained no error messages.

Further research showed that this was not tied to a specific target language but rather occured always with the fifth compilation process. The first four processes continued running.

Due to time restrictions, these five compilation processes had to be done in parallel, so serializing them (e.g. compiling the fifth language after the four other have finished) was not an option.

Running the five compilation processes outside a Terminal Services session also was not an option as the machine used for compiling was located at a remote site.

Using a third-party task scheduler was also rejected by the customer as it did not meet certain business requirements.
