.vcxproj not found

I added another rust project to appveyor but from gitlab this time. The only output I get from appveyor is the following:

Build started
git clone -q --branch=master https://gitlab.gnome.org/GuillaumeGomez/librsvg.git C:\projects\librsvg
Solution project file "rsvg.vcxproj" cannot be found.

Why is it not following the appveyor.yml file instructions and instead is looking for this file?

Any help would be very appreciated!

    In case it might help, here is the àppveyor.yml`file:

        - RUST: stable
          BITS: 32
        - RUST: stable
          BITS: 64
      - IF "%BITS%" == "32" SET ARCH=i686
      - IF "%BITS%" == "64" SET ARCH=x86_64
      - curl -sSf -o rustup-init.exe https://win.rustup.rs
      - rustup-init.exe --default-host "%ARCH%-pc-windows-gnu" --default-toolchain %RUST% -y
      - SET PATH=C:\Users\appveyor\.cargo\bin;C:\msys64\mingw%BITS%\bin;%PATH%;C:\msys64\usr\bin
      - rustc -Vv
      - cargo -Vv
      - pacman --noconfirm -S mingw-w64-%ARCH%-gtk3 mingw-w64-%ARCH%-gtk3
      - cd rust
      - cargo build
      - cargo test
    test: false

    Link to specific build usually helps a lot to speed up the help. I found your project finally. Problem is you set it up as a generic Git. YAML file cannot be read from generic Git repository as described in the documentation. You can re-setup you project as a GitLab or use alternative YAML file location.
