Previous worker images

There are build worker images available from previous deployment. You can use them in case of any issues with the current images:

  • Previous Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Previous Unstable
  • Previous Visual Studio 2014 CTP4
  • Previous Visual Studio 2015 CTP
  • Previous Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6
  • Previous Visual Studio 2015 Preview
  • Previous MinGW

You can select build worker image in OS dropdown on Environment tab of project settings or if you use appveyor.yml:

os: Previous Windows Server 2012 R2

Note to “Pro” customers: Whenever custom build worker image is chosen the build will run on Azure, so there is about 3-4 minutes delay before build starts to provision build worker virtual machine.
