Can't build project that uses SQLite for Windows Runtime

I'm having issues with a Windows Phone project that uses SQLite. The Appveyor build process fails with the following error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(1886,5): error MSB3774: Could not find SDK "SQLite.WinRT81, Version=".

At my local machine I had to install a Visual Studio Extension (SQLite for Windows Phone 8.1 and SQLite for Windows Runtime) to use SQLite in my project. What should I do to get the build working? I searched for over an hour but couldn't find a solution.

Best regards,

    As you are admin on build worker you can use this simple PowerShell script to install SQLite for Windows Phone 8.1 extension (and any other missing extension):
