And this error only occurred in a specific environment. We trace the commit log and find this error relate to the feature "BaseTools Enable multiple-thread autogen".
Maybe this environment doesn't support multi thread well, the root cause is still unknown.
May I ask whether there's a way to disable this feature, or any other workaround for this problem.

That is an error in a Python build tool, not a compiler error?
