    It could be anything. Have you tried increasing Node heap size via --max_old_space_size=8192 argument (or environment variable)?

    set NODE_OPTIONS=--max_old_space_size=8192, when we set this , build not working
    we have configured in appveyor.yml, same when we set this to 7168 build working but with error when we enable --aot

    What version of Node do you use? Could you drop me a link to a build please?

    Also, you may try running the build on GCP environment to see if that makes a difference. Add this environment variable to project settings or appveyor.yml:

    Try using 64-bit version of Node by adding x64 at the end of the command:

    appveyor-retry powershell Install-Product node $env:nodejs_version x64

    Also, try 14.x Node.

    I guess AOT is quite compute-intensive feature. Definitely, cloud VMs do not have the same performance as your local development machine, so you can see a lower performance there.

    You were trialing custom build workers on GCP (4 cores, more GHz) about a year ago. Maybe you'd like to do it again to see if it performs better?
