How can I change current directory?
Example:

echo %CD%
C:\projects\appveyor-test
cd _builds
echo %CD%
C:\projects\appveyor-test

    Try selecting "PS" when configuring script. The main build session is PowerShell session, but "CMD" scripts run as a separate batches that do not affect "parent" session.

    Now I can't find my build logs (: I only see error message 'Specify a project or solution file. The directory does not contain a project or solution file' but I have both 'build_script' and 'test_script' as custom steps.

    Are you configuring project through appveyor.yml? Can you post it?

    Sure:

    build_script:
      - echo %CD%
      - mkdir foo
      - echo %CD%
      - ps: cd foo
      - echo %CD%
      - cmake -H. -B_builds
      - cmake --build _builds
    
    test_script:
      - echo %CD%
      - ps: cd _builds
      - echo %CD%
      - ctest -VV
      - echo %CD%
    

    BTW the whole project:
    https://github.com/forexample/appveyor-test

    Hm, I thought it's AppVeyor 2.0 beta. appveyor.yml is supported in beta only: blog.appveyor.com/2014/02/19/appveyor-20-dedicated-build-vms-parallel-testing-nuget-deployment/

    Could you please try running your project on beta?

    Hah (: Didn't notice that, sorry.

    'cd' with 'ps' works fine. Thank you!
