Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll for dotnet core

I am building a solution as follows:

dotnet build /l:"C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll"

but I get

'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.v3.5, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. The system cannot find the file specified.

because Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll is compiled against the net461 version of MSBuild and dotnet CLI runs under dotnet core.

Is there a copy of Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll that is compiled for the netstandard version of MSBuild? If not, what other solutions are there?

    Yes, there are .NET Core counterparts for some AppVeyor Build Agent assemblies in C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\dotnetcore directory, so the following command should work:

    dotnet build /l:"C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\dotnetcore\Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll"
