Looks like there was some changes made in build machine environment. My old build was working but now it stopped:

Configs are the same:

I've figure out how to fix it but one problem still bothers me. As you can see in logs at line 15: python script failed to start but produce no error about it. Probably bad exit code is ignored or something, I think the status of the build should be FAILED there.

    You mean .py extension mapping? Yeah, it looks like it's gone after some Python reinstallation. Though I think it's better to explicitly call python.exe as there are multiple Python versions on build worker and it might be confusing if .py is mapped to specific version.

    Okay, that's what I was thinking. Anyway I've solved it.

    What about test SUCCESS status?

    I think result here should be "Build Failed".
