We’ve just added a new build worker image with Visual Studio 2015 CTP 5 installed!

Both Visual Studio Ultimate 2015 CTP and Visual Studio 2015 SDK CTP were installed from official download page.

Build worker image is called Visual Studio 2015 CTP. You can select it on Environment tab of project settings (if you configure project on UI):


or specify in appveyor.yml:

os: Visual Studio 2015 CTP

Please note builds using this image run on Azure environment which means there is a few minutes delay before build starts required to provision build worker VM.

Add this command to install section of your build config if you need msbuild command to call MSBuild 14.0 by default:

set PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin;%PATH%

There is an image with previous Visual Studio 2015 release called Visual Studio 2015 Preview. Starting from today we will be updating only new Visual Studio 2015 CTP image.
