During the latest SDK testing rounds we have found an issue with the latest VirtuaBox (version 6.1.26) and Windows: When headless virtual machines are shut down, they do not shut down cleanly. There will be some VirtualBox processes left running, which reserve resources.
This effectively prevents the build engine from starting again, until the processes are terminated manually, or the machine is rebooted. The processes can be terminated via Task Manager - search for “VirtualBox Headless Frontend”
While waiting for a fix, we recommend you to use the VirtualBox version 6.1.24.
