Just to clarify what i did is to remove the lines that invoke Service Fabric scripts from appveyor.yml and i RD the agent and tried to run the CleanCluster.ps1 script from a PS window inside the agent with the same result. Then I checked the services and i notices that the Service Fabric Host Service status was "starting" but it got stuck there. Then i cancel this build and fired another one and RD the agent and this time i just went to the services and manually tried to start the Service Fabric Host Service but it didn't start.

I started to use Previous Visual Studio 2017 because i start having this problem with Visual Studio 2017 but now i have the same problem with Previous Visual Studio 2017 and with Visual Studio 2017. Now i noticed that only Visual Studio 2017 Preview will start the local service fabric cluster correctly. Here is a link of a build using Visual Studio 2017 image that has the same problem.
Oh, please do not do that silently next time. If you found this kind of issue, please report and we will fix it before or as part of next major image update (when current image becomes previous and old previous is gone).
I filed this issue to track it. Do you need some temporary workaround or you are unblocked with Visual Studio 2017 Preview?
