period instead of comma fails unit test in AppVeyor despite ok in VS2012

I have a solution with MS unit tests under Visual Studio 2012:
When I compile in VS 2012, it's ok
When I run unit tests in VS2012, it's ok
In AppVeyor, it give me a failed test:
here is my test:
    public void TestMethod_IsNumeric3_true_Allow_decimal_white()
      const string source = "1234,56";
      const NumberStyles numberStyle = NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint;
      const bool expected = true;
      bool result = StringFunc.IsNumeric3(source, numberStyle);
      Assert.AreEqual(result, expected);
Like this, VS2012 passes the test and AppVeyor fails
If I replace the comma with a period in source variable, AppVeyor passes the test and VS2012 fails
I work on a french VS 2012 with a French Windows 7
In France, the decimal separator is a comma and not a period
Is it a bug from AppVeyor ?

    You can use Set-Culture cmdlet to change the culture (locale) of current user.

    Add this to Install phase of your project settings (select "PS"):

    Set-Culture fr-FR
