KRE error running tests in Azure DevOps CI/CD release pipeline

I have created an Azure DevOps CI/CD release pipeline, which deploys a new version of our app then uses KRE to run a series of automated tests.
Every time KRE runs as part of this automated pipeline, it will fail with the error

See the full logs from the task: tasklog_9.log (11.8 KB)

This same test suite run perfectly well when they are run separately Azure DevOps release pipeline where they are the only task running. So we know that the test suite can work perfectly fine in Azure DevOps, just only when manually and not when run as part of an automated build.
The tests are run on Microsoft-hosted pipelines, on Windows Server 2022, so we are unable to log on directly and see what is occurring

It is not a license issue, as we use a floating license and there is nothing using the license at the same time as the test is running.
