I'm not sure if this is really an AppVeyor thing but I wanted to report it anyway just in case it helps. Recently my VS2019 build images started failing and I realised today that it's related to the recent version of GitVersion that have been released since July 30th (at the time of writing this v5.0.0 and v5.0.1).

I know get the following error:

System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Unrecognized configuration section dllmap. (C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\GitVersion.Portable\tools\GitVersion.exe.Config line 6)

To fix this I simply updated my yaml file to ensure that v4.0.0 is always used:

choco install gitversion.portable --version 4.0.0

And this appears to have soled the issue.
