Hanging builds

Since the AppVeyor upgrade to v2, it seems like all my builds just hang. The state remains "Pending" and the console remains empty.

Do you have any idea what is wrong?

Thanks in advance,

    I figured something might have gone wrong during the upgrade, so I deleted the project and revoked github credentials.

    I added the credentials again afterwards and created a new project. I changed my build number, platform and configuration settings. The build still hangs.

    I turned off the platform parameter and set it back to "project default". The build seems to run fine now... Weird thing is that the default is Any CPU, which is the same as the param i set. My other projects don't seem to have this parameter set, so I'll have to check them out before I can tell what is screwing those over.

    Hi Steven,

    Does it work now? The problem was in "Platform" parameter?

    Hi Feodor,

    The build I was talking about works now and was indeed the platform parameter.
    I have some other builds that refuse to start without the parameter. Deleting them creating a new build seems to resolve the issue. I'm guessing something went wrong in the appveyor upgrade.

    I would test more, but I'm currently having issues logging in (with my github account: Cannot implicitly convert type 'Newtonsoft.Json.Linq.JObject' to 'string'. An explicit conversion exists (are you missing a cast?) )

    OK, found it and fixed. Update deployed.

    A GitHub API method for reading user details was changed yesterday breaking GitHub sign in button. That's strange - we are part of GitHub Developer Program, but I didn't receive any notification about API "finalization". I asked them about this issue.

    UPDATE: It's been a planned cutover test of GitHub API v3

    My fault. It's all fixed now to always request v3 response.

    After playing around with a few other old projects, the issues seem to resolve on their own after turning off the PS build and environment scripts. Turning them back on doesn't break it again, it just keeps working.

    Not sure what the issue is, but if anyone else has a hanging build, try turning the scripts on and off and save a few times.

    I think it's time to close this issue, thanks for the help Feodor :-)
