Build process abortion?

Hey AppVeyors,

Why is the build process constantly aborting for this project ( when starting to compile the first source file? It looks like this is only happening for the debug configs. Note that this is not a compilation issue of the project, the compilation is just aborted after a longer period of time without any diagnose message.

BTW, the project needs about less than one minute to build and run all tests on my local machine. Within the AppVeyor machine it takes 10-20 times longer. So might this be an issue with an under-resourced VM image running out of memory or so?

    Yeah, but what about all the others? There hasn't been any change to the code in between... I just changed the `verbosity` setting from `minimal` to `detailed` (which passed the build as you mentioned above) and then back to `minimal` ...

    So it works with "detailed" and doesn't with "minimal"?

    Ok, tried some more builds with different settings for 'verbosity':
    - minimal: failing
    - normal: failing
    - detailed: triggered and in the queue, still waiting for the results
    But happens only for the debug configs but for both archs (win32 and x64)...

    Also 'detailed' is failing. But all the debug builds are working locally.

    Must be something within your VMs. How can that be debugged or tracked down? Maybe something related to your custom reporters?

    Thx for that; so it is an issue with the AV logger than? What does the logger actually do?

    For this project the first file (tinyxml2.cpp) that gets compiled issues some compiler warnings (in debug mode only), which looks like dead-locking the AV logger then. Later compiler warnings seem to work fine so...

    Hm, that's good to know. I'll take a look what's going on there.

    I ran few builds for Win32/Debug trying to reproduce the issue:

    Seems like it is not reproducible on "Pro" environment (Hyper-V).

    so what is the conclusion from that?

    Don't know yet - need more testing.

    Do not use AppVeyor msbuild logger for now.
