Rust build fails on shared runner, works everywhere else
I'm not sure if this should be filed here, but the blog post on the new Windows shared runners says I should file it here.
I have a project that compiles on:
- A local Windows VM with 8 GB of RAM
- A Windows VM I launched on GCP, installed necessary tooling into, installed the GitLab runner, and connected to my project
It fails to build on shared VMs. The error I get is:

I'm a Linux user with little knowledge of Windows server maintenance, so I'd really rather build this open source project on your shared Windows runners, even if I have to pay for it at some point. But I don't know why my builds fail on your shared runners but work everywhere else, including the private group runner I set up a while back. Granted, I installed my own tooling on the group runner and am using Choco in the build script, but it gets the same versions. My suspicion was that I was running out of RAM, but again, my local VM has 8G and finishes builds just fine, and I think but am not certain that my GCP VM only had 4G.
Thanks for any help.
