".NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2" were not found

Hi there,

I would like to kick off of build our application with that target .net framework but looks like it doesn't exist or something broken. Can you verify that .net framework version 4.5.2 is installed or I need to change something in my appveyor.xml for to do that? Thanks!

This is my project: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/envoypatrick/e

This is the error:
The reference assemblies for framework ".NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2" were not found. To resolve this, install the SDK or Targeting Pack for this framework version or retarget your application to a version of the framework for which you have the SDK or Targeting Pack installed. Note that assemblies will be resolved from the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) and will be used in place of reference assemblies.

    I was probably because you were using Visual Studio 2013 image. I see that last two of your builds are on Visual Studio 2017 and successful.
