Qt 5.7 vanished overnight

Qt 5.7 used to live in C:\Qt\5.7\msvc2015_64 when using the Visual Studio 2015 image.

In fact, only yesterday I had a build succeed which was using it.

But today, it's completely gone. The current build environment shows it as not present on 2015:

But when you look in the Google cache, you can see that it previously was on all images:

    Correct, 5.7 was removed from the build image as it reached EOL: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/2291

    We cannot keep every version of Qt on build worker image as it takes a lot (~15 GB per version).

    Switch your build to either 5.6.x or 5.9.x LTS.

    Oh my...

    I hope it still builds on 5.9, because I'm not familiar with the code, I'm just trying to get it to build.

    Maybe my idea of using the pre-installed Qt was mistaken in the first place though. It doesn't make for stable builds if the platform can suddenly remove things with no notice.
