The build stopped unexpectedly because of an internal failure

Ran into this issue the other day where one of the projects from the solution was not building and throwing this error:
Error 1 The build stopped unexpectedly because of an internal failure. Microsoft.Build.Exceptions.BuildAbortedException: Build was canceled. Failed to successfully launch or connect to a child MSBuild.exe process. Verify that the MSBuild.exe "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe" launches successfully, and that it is loading the same microsoft.build.dll that the launching process loaded. If the location seems incorrect, try specifying the correct location in the BuildParameters object, or with the MSBUILD_EXE_PATH environment variable. at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.NodeProviderOutOfProc.CreateNode(Int32 nodeId, INodePacketFactory factory, NodeConfiguration configuration) at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.NodeManager.AttemptCreateNode(INodeProvider nodeProvider, NodeConfiguration nodeConfiguration) at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.NodeManager.CreateNode(NodeConfiguration configuration, NodeAffinity nodeAffinity) at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.PerformSchedulingActions(IEnumerable`1 responses) at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.HandleNewRequest(Int32 node, BuildRequestBlocker blocker) at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.IssueRequestToScheduler(BuildSubmission submission, Boolean allowMainThreadBuild, BuildRequestBlocker blocker) D:\MaM\Server\ClientServices\Dev\ClientService 1.4\Conduit.Mam.ClientServices.Common.Initizliaer\Conduit.Mam.ClientServices.Common.Initizliaer.csproj Conduit.Mam.ClientServices.Common.Initizliaer
The solution was as simple as restarting Visual Studio.
