I am getting the following error:

git : error: timer thread did not terminate timely
At line:1 char:68
+ ... OrEmpty($rSF))) { Exit-AppVeyorBuild } else { git checkout -qf $rSF }
+                                                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (error: timer th...erminate timely:String) [], RemoteException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError

Command executed with exception: error: timer thread did not terminate timely
I think this error only happens with the newest windows images update on 09 November.

What is this error and why am I getting it?

    So if you rebuild the same commit on Previous image then this error does not occur?

    In Previous Image command exits with code 0, but to exit this command requires much more time than other times.

    Can you provide us with a repro project? One that is simplified and doesn't rely on any encrypted variables.

    I didn't catch this and sorry (my english are bad). Do you mean that I should provide a link with the error? I have edited my post.

    No, I mean that you should create a new repository that represents a simplified version of the error (without any encrypted variables or extraneous steps).

    I replaces PowerShell code with batch file, so problem is gone, thanks anyway!
