    The issue with using ssh to connect to the VM through Gitlab CI is that there is no console or active desktop available in that environment. One potential solution that I am looking at is using ssh to send PsExec commands.

    Another step I needed to take is to allow the VM to automatically log into Windows upon starting by modifying the registry.
