Build stuck after running tests

Please have a look at this build:
I re-ran it few times and it's always get stuck after the tests phase, and fails on timeout after 3 hours.
There's no error message or anything that can indicate what the problem could be. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Arnon,

    Most probably there is some child process (browser, driver, etc.) hanging after the tests are finished which prevents worker to go further to the next step.

    As a solution you may try disabling automatic tests discovery and execution, then take that vstest.console command from the log and create a batch file in the root called tests.cmd with that command inside. Then running batch as a test command should do the trick. Let me know if you need any help with doing that.

    Hi Feodor,

    I just want to let you know, that after a thorough investigation to find the root cause for this problem, it seems that it was resolved by AppVeyor itself, without me doing any change. I reran the build that was stuck and now it passed.

    Thanks anyway,

    That's strange, but thanks for the update anyway :)
