Qt Versions

I am trying to install arbitrary Qt versions so as to be independent of the provided versions. Specifically, I at least want whatever latest PyQt5 wheels include. I am getting:


Build exceeded allowed resource quotas. Fix your build to consume less resources or contact AppVeyor support to request quotas increase.

Ok, now it's obvious there's a 1GB limit... I just forgot about it. But, any way to proceed? If I can't get my own versions in the free plan (I get it and appreciate all that AppVeyor does give me) I guess I'd request Qt 5.11.2 get installed.

I haven't dug far into it yet but would running my own worker be possible? I don't work on pyqt5-tools most of the time so having to spin up my own vm wouldn't be the end of the world I suppose.

Thanks for any other suggestions.

    Hi Kyle,

    Sorry for the late reply. We were super busy with GitHub outage consequences.

    What happened is that you reached incoming traffic limit of 7Gb and abuse prevention system automatically blocked your account. Sorry for that. We unblocked your account and bumped incoming traffic limit for you to 10 Gb. Not sure however if i is enough for your scenario.

    I think that we already have Qt 5.11.2 in our next update plans, check https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/2659.

    If you want your own build VM, it is possible too. Please check this and this. Please disregard Premium plan requirements, we already provide this for free for open source per request, will update our site later. But with this approach you pay for compute (or psychical machine) you connect to AppVeyor yourself.
